Burglars to expect prison after householder attack
TWO men have been warned to expect prison sentences after they admitted a burglary in which a Boston householder was attacked.
Rokas Slimas, 21, and Jaroslav Martinkevic, 20, each pleaded guilty to a charge of burglary at a house in Queen Street, Boston, when they appeared at Lincoln Crown Court.
The court heard a television was stolen from the premises during the burglary on September 9 this year.
Slimas admitted a second charge of common assault on the occupier of the burgled property.
Recorder Julian Taylor adjourned the case for probation reports and so criminal records checks could be made on the two men with police in Lithuania.
Both men, of no fixed address, were remanded in to custody until November 1 when they will be sentenced at Lincoln Crown Court.
Adjourning sentence Recorder Taylor told them: "This is a serious case in which a householder was attacked during the course of a burglary.
"A custodial sentence is inevitable."
