A 66-year-old Great Yarmouth man who admitted having a taser has been warned he could face a jail sentence.

Corado Scarian, of Patterson Close, pleaded guilty to possessing a prohibited weapon on October 22 2018 when he appeared at Norwich Crown Court.

Martin Ivory appeared for the prosecution at the short hearing.

Matthew McNiff appeared for Scarian, and asked for a pre-sentence report for the defendant.

Judge Anthony Bate adjourned sentence until September 11 and ordered a pre-sentence report for Scarian.
