A SWINDON pair have admitted affray – with one coughing to possession of a stun gun disguised as a torch.

Appearing before Swindon Crown Court, Tyler Vernon, 26, of Naunton Road, Walcot, pleaded guilty to affray and possession of disguised firearm but denied possession of a bladed article on Regent Street.

Jordan Dunn, 25, of Walter Close, west Swindon, pleaded guilty to affray.

The charges all relate to an alleged incident on January 14 last year on Regent Street in Swindon town centre.

Prosecuting, Colin Meeke said the pleas were acceptable to the Crown and Judge Jason Taylor QC adjourned the case to Tuesday, February 18 for sentence.

He told Vernon: “You know the serious position you are in. It is a mandatory minimum sentence of five years for the Taser unless your advocate can persuade the court it would be unjust to do that.”

"Mr Dunn, I'm going to order a pre-sentence report. All options are open to the court."

Both men were bailed.

According to Sentencing Council guidelines, the sentence for affray range from a fine to almost three years behind bars.
