Man, 22, given community order for assaulting police officer and possessing knife in Milton Keynes
MK magistrates took his plea of guilty into account when sentencing
A young man has been ordered to carry out 100 hours of unpaid work as a punishment for beating a police officer and carrying a knife in a public place.
Juventus Donbeinaa, 22, who lives on Monkston Park, pleaded guilty to both charges at Milton Keynes magistrates court.
The assault by beating happened in February last year, on the same day police discovered a kitchen knife in his possession.
Donbeinaa was given a community order to take part for 30 days in a programme called Building Better Relationships. He must also carry out 100 hours of work, unpaid, over the next 12 months.
Magistrates ordered him to pay £100 compensation, a £95 surcharge to fund victim services and £85 costs - a total of £280. He was given until the end of the month to pay.
Court papers state Dobeinaa's guilty plea taken into account when magistrates imposed the sentence.
