Man in Court on Penknife Charge (UK) Follow up on man arrested for possession of a penknife, etc
http://news.scotsman.com/latest.cfm?id=3829022 ^

By Laura Scott, PA

A businessman working in the Formula 1 motor racing industry today denied two charges relating to him possessing a penknife and baton in his briefcase.

Nicholas Samengo-Turner pleaded not guilty to one charge of possessing a bladed or pointed instrument in a public place and one charge of possessing an offensive weapon in public.

After the brief hearing at Bow Street Magistrates? Court, in central London, the 50-year-old former investment banker, who also trained at the Royal Military Academy at Sandhurst, vowed outside the court that he would take his case all the way to the House of Lords if necessary.

He added: ?There is something wrong with both the CPS (Crown Prosecution Service) and the police when they claim they are overstretched and under-resourced yet they still continue spending public money and time on something in which there was no criminal danger to anyone.?

Mr Samengo-Turner wrote an article in The Spectator, reproduced in some newspapers, about his arrest and his experiences in a police station.

The father of two, of Newmarket, Suffolk, who was joined at the court by his wife Kate, was remanded on unconditional bail until January 12 for a hearing to commit the case to Crown Court.

I?d expect something like this to happen here in Illinois, I?m sure Mayor Daley is scared to death of our possible use of an ?Assault Penknife? Next thing you know he?ll be pushing for a ban on the lethal "Assault Penknife".
