Jail for woman following repeated trespassing – Peterborough
Main article content
A woman has been jailed after breaching issued Criminal Behaviour Orders and trespassing, following a British Transport Police investigation.
Kerry Moate, aged 29, of Tay Close, St Ives, Cambridgeshire was found guilty of trespassing on the railway and causing obstruction and breaching issued Criminal Behaviour Orders (CBO) at Cambridge Magistrates’ Court on Friday 3 February 2023. The judge sentenced Moate to 12 weeks in prison.
On Thursday 2 February, Moate breached her current CBO which prevents her from entering or loitering near any train station unless for travel, when she was found loitering outside Huntingdon Railway Station expressing intent to trespass. BTP officers attended and arrested her for this breach.
This sentencing follows a number of incidents since December 2021 where Moate has continuously trespassed on the lines at Peterborough and Huntingdon railway stations.
PS Mark Rowe said "I hope Moate can understand following this sentence the severity the crimes she has committed.
"As officers we have to look out for everyone's safety who travel on the rail network and her actions could have caused great harm to many."
