Recorder Hallam told Carmocanu “The purpose of that report is so that the judge can find out more about you before passing sentence.

“I make no indication as to the sort of sentence that will be imposed upon you. All sentencing options remain open including custody.”

Carmocanu, 26, of Holbeach Road, Spalding, was granted bail to appear back before the Crown Court on 24 August when he is to be sentenced.
