A Bridlington man with a criminal record “littered” with violence has been told he faces jail after he was back in court on an affray charge.

Micheal Kellett, 34, appeared at York Crown Court on Monday when he admitted using or threatening violence towards another on June 18.

Sentence was adjourned for probation reports but Judge Deborah Sherwin told Kellett, an offshore worker, that his previous convictions for violence had put him in a very precarious position.

The court heard that Kellett was on a community order, which included a rehabilitation course and alcohol-treatment programme, for a previous offence at the time of the affray.

Mrs Sherwin added: “Having looked at (Kellett’s) antecedents, littered with affrays and assaults, he clearly must understand he’s very much at risk of a custodial sentence.”

Kellett - whose registered address is Gypsy Road, Bridlington, but is currently living with his mother in Strensall Drive, Scarborough - was bailed until the sentence hearing on September 13 on the proviso that he resided at the latter address.
