A 21-year-old from Corby has been given a suspended prison sentence after he was caught in possession of a machete and a 7cm pocket knife.
Mitchell Lee Morrissey was driving a black Ford Fiesta in Cliftonville Road, Northampton, in October 2019 without insurance or a licence and was caught with the two weapons as well as cannabis.
He had originally pleaded not guilty but was found guilty by magistrates following a trial.
On Monday (May 17) he appeared before the court in Northampton where he was given a six month prison sentence, suspended for 18 months. He must take part in 30 rehabilitation activity days, complete a Thinking Skills programme, do 200 hours of community service and pay £500 in costs and fees.
