Bleach swap man convicted

Issue 467

A MAN broke into his exgirlfriend’s home and swapped mouthwash for bleach, a court heard.
Store supervisor Christopher Marsden, 28, who worked at The Mill shopping village in Batley, was told he could be jailed.
Marsden admitted a charge of attempting to cause Amy Burgess to take a poison with intent to harm her.
Bradford Crown Court was told that Marsden substituted the bleach for mouthwash during a burglary at her home last August.
Marsden, who is currently bailed to an address in Portsmouth, had previously admitted the burglary offence.
He also pleaded guilty to causing criminal damage relating to items belonging to Miss Burgess.
Mr Jonathan Devlin, prosecuting, told Judge Peter Benson that when Marsden is sentenced next month the prosecution would be seeking a restraining order against him.
The court heard that Marsden pleaded guilty to the offence involving the bleach on the basis that he believed it would have been obvious that the mouthwash bottle had been tampered with.
It is understood that the mouthwash was blue and the bleach which Marsden put in the bottle was yellow.
Adjourning the case until May 9 for sentence, Judge Benson said: “These are serious matters and you must expect the court to be considering a custodial sentence.”
