Suspended Sentence For Emmerdale Thug

Former Emmerdale actor Luke Tittensor has been handed a 2 year suspended sentence for causing grevious bodily harm.
Tittensor, who played Daz Eden in the ITV1 soap, admitted to inflicting GBH on a 16-year-old in February last year. He appeared at Bolton Crown Court this afternoon where he was sentenced to 9 months imprisonment, however, this sentence has been suspended for 2 years.

Additionally the star will have to fork out court costs of £1,100 and pay his victim £1,000 in compensation.

The unnamed victim suffered a broken jaw in the incident and was forced to undergo corrective surgery.

Speaking of the case, Judge Lindsey Kushner QC said “You look like a responsible young man. You behaved like so many of the louts that we see before us in these courts. You are 19 years of age but ostensibly more mature than most 19-year-olds because you have been living in the public eye since you were a child.

I have to demonstrate to the public that whether you are famous or whether you are unknown, the court has to take a dim view of this behaviour. This poor boy has suffered a full assault, serious injury, surgery, and he is generous enough to say all he wants you to do is accept your responsibility, which in fact you have.

Goodness knows what happened. I don’t know if you were a victim of your own inflated view on that day, I don’t know. Can there be an end to this, please?”

Emmerdale recently axed Tittensor due to the serious nature of the charge.
