Suspended Sentence For Witness Nobbling Attempt

A man behind a witness nobbling bid in a £30,000 civil court case has received a suspended sentence and a restraining order prohibiting him contacting the victim for a decade.

David Hall, 47, of Wellington Street, Waterloo, Liverpool told Ryan Elliott: “You have no friends in Liverpool, drop the case or it will be more than your car next time,” referring to paint-stripper being thrown on the vehicle and: “Last warning, drop the case.”

He pleaded guilty at Kingston-upon-Thames Crown Court to one charge of intimidating a witness in civil proceedings on January 20 at Waterloo Business Centre, Southwark, namely verbally threatened Mr. Elliott knowing he was a witness in civil debt recovery proceedings, intending to cause the course of justice to be obstructed.

Hall was also ordered to pay £300 costs.
