Asbo cross dresser was wrongly jailed
High Court rules Asbo cross dresser was wrongly jailed
A man who upset children by dressing up as a schoolgirl was wrongly jailed by magistrates, the High Court has ruled.
Peter Trigger, of Northampton, received an Anti-social Behaviour Order (Asbo) in 2008 banning him from showing bare legs when children arrived for school.
The 60-year-old was later given a suspended sentence for breaching the Asbo and the sentence was activated last October.
Two judges said the case involved a “sorry catalogue of errors”.
