North-east teenager warned she could be locked up if she doesn’t meet social workers

North-east teenager warned she could be locked up if she doesn’t meet social workers

A north-east teenager was last night warned she could find herself behind bars if she does not meet with social workers.

Taylor Howey, 18, appeared at Peterhead Sheriff Court yesterday to be sentenced for carrying a knife.

But proceedings were halted when the court heard she had not yet met with social workers who were ordered to compile a background report on the teenager.

Man appears at Peterhead Sheriff Court to face theft by housebreaking charge

She had been told to arrange a meeting with the service last month, when she admitted to concealing a seven-inch blade within a towel and threatening to stab a woman.

Howey also pled guilty to sending the woman threatening messages over Facebook, challenging her to a fight between July 23 and 24 last year.

And she admitted breaching her bail conditions by shouting at the same woman in the port last November.

During yesterday’s hearing, her own solicitor warned Howey that she faced being locked up if she did not meet with social workers before the case’s next calling.

He presented a letter from the social work service to Sheriff Christine McCrossan explaining Howey’s non-attendance.

“Miss Howey has not managed to comply,” he said.

“I’ve told her if she doesn’t comply with that process she may find herself in a fixed location.”

Mr Milligan added that a meeting was scheduled to take place between his client and a social worker this Thursday.

Sheriff McCrossan deferred sentencing on Howey, of Leask Avenue in Peterhead, to allow that to happen.

She will now return to court on May 22.

The court previously heard that Howey described her victim as a “fat mess” before sending her the message: “I’m going to come through and stab you”.

She was apprehended by police when a witness believed she saw Howey carry a knife and was concerned that she may act on her threat.

The knife was found was wrapped in a tea towel within a car she was travelling in.
