Ten of those charged in connection with organising the UK Teknival (See SchNEWS 727) pleaded guilty last Wednesday to holding unlicensed licensable activity and were sentenced at Haverfordwest Magistrates’ Court to a twelve-month community order, £200 court costs, and 100 hours’ community service (except for one unlucky offender who got 160 hours).

Of the thirteen charged in connection with last May’s rave, six pleaded guilty, six pleaded not guilty and one failed to show up at the hearing. On a positive note, many were pleased to finally get their personal effects back, such as mobile phones, CDs, CDJs and rare and irreplaceable record collections. As of yet larger sound equipment has not been returned but there is still hope that it may be recovered.
