Scales of Justice

Tiffany appeared at Lincoln Magistrates’ Court on July 28 to face the charge, which alleges that he committed the offence - making an unwarranted demand of £20 from another man ‘with menaces’ - in Louth on July 26.

Due to the nature of the charge, it was sent directly to Lincoln Crown Court without Tiffany making a plea.

His trial will begin on August 25.
