Urination case is thrown out by magistrates

Published in News

AUTHORITIES in Selby have said they will continue to prosecute people who urinate in the street after a case was thrown out by magistrates.

Nykysha Young, 21, of Johnson Street, Selby, appeared at York and Selby Magistrates’ Court, charged under a Selby District Council bylaw with public urination, which she denied.

Magistrates dismissed the case and ordered Selby District Council to pay defence costs, but Tracey Young, Nykysha’s mother, said she believed it could mean more than 100 previous prosecutions under the bylaw could be reopened.

A spokesman for Selby District Council said there were no plans to look again at the previous prosecutions.

He said: “Each case is treated on its own merits.”

If you need to go to the toilet after about 7pm in York where do you go?????
I've lived in York all my life for the last 50 odd years and I couldn't dierect everyone to a public toilet that would be open. You can't expect pubs ect. to be open house for none paying customers. That's what the council seem to think

Selby council closed all the public toilets to save money and now fine people who after drinking large amounts of "liquid" have to "go", to make money?
Selby council always solves one problem by making another?
