Goole man facing burglary trial

A GOOLE man has admitted burgling a house in the town but denied being involved in a second burglary in a neighbouring street and elected a trial.

Jeffrey Barker, 37, of Clifton Gardens pleaded guilty to breaking into a house in Riversdale Drive, Goole, but denied breaking into a house in Belgrave Drive, Goole, on September 20.

Barker appeared before Recorder David Osborne at Hull Crown Court on Monday, April 4 to enter his pleas. He also pleaded not guilty to the theft of a Ford Focus car belonging to Wayne Jackson between 18-21 September, 2015.

Defence barrister Pamela Coxon said she was awaiting expert evidence.

Recorder David Osborne ordered Barker to stand as he told him: “You have pleaded guilty to one burglary, but not guilty to the other. A trial needs to take place on May 3. It is not very far away. I have made directions so the case is ready. Stay in touch with counsel. I know you entered a guilty plea, but you will be sentenced in good time.”

He granted Barker bail allowing him to walk free from court until May 3.
