Atherstone Hunt supporter guilty of assault

ATHERSTONE HUNT SUPPORTER LAURA CAINES FOUND GUILTY OF TWO COUNTS OF ASSAULT BY BEATINGToday Atherstone Hunt supporter Laura Caines was found guilty of two counts of assault by beating at Loughbourgh Magistrates Court. The incident happened on the 28th February 2015 after a fox was chased and illegally hunted by hounds in front of huntsman Stuart Barton and Hunt Saboteurs. Barton immediately rides his horse into the nearest saboteur pinning them against a wall. Caines then attacks the same saboteur from behind by putting them in a head lock, hitting them over the head and then attempting to steal their camcorder. She then moved on to the other sab who was filming, grabbed her and then dug her nails into the sabs check causing it to bleed. She again tried to steal the camcorder that had filmed the incident. Magistrates found her guilty in her absence after offering no defence. A warrant has been issued for her arrest so that she can be sentenced.
