Chelsea Ives facing fresh violence charges
Ex-Olympic ambassador Chelsea Ives faced fresh charges at Highbury Corner Magistrates’ Court today after new allegations emerged.
Ives, 18, was previously charged with violent disorder in Enfield during the London riots in August, as well as two counts of burglary against mobile phone shops. Today she faced a further count of taking part in more violence the following night in Hackney.
Highbury magistrates committed Ives for trial at Wood Green Crown court on two charges of violent disorder. She will appear at Wood Green to enter a plea on September 21st, with the actual trial likely to take place in 2012.
The new allegation relates to looting of the Somerfields supermarket in Lower Clapton Road.
Meanwhile, the former athlete has been remanded back into custody until her next court appearance later this month.
