Four jailed for violent Sevenoaks brawl after attending conference
Four people who took part in a violent brawl after attending a conference in Sevenoaks have been jailed.
Dale Lutton, Paul Carbine, Sebastian Seccombe and Deirdre McTucker all attended an event at a theatre in the town on April 14 2018.
Soon afterwards, a fight broke out with non-attendees in Bligh’s Meadow car park.
Lutton, 27, of no fixed address, was jailed for 16 months after being found guilty of violent disorder at a trial in September.
He was filmed joining in with the fighting as soon as it began, targeting one person in particular and throwing multiple punches at him.
Carbine, 33, of Meadow Lane in Wickford, Essex, was sentenced to 12 months’ imprisonment after pleading guilty to violent disorder.
He was caught on camera throwing punches at various different members of the opposing group.
McTucker, 43, of no fixed address, was jailed for 12 months after being found guilty of violent disorder at a trial in September.
She was filmed grabbing a woman by the hair before punching her repeatedly in the face.
Seccombe, 20, of Holwick Close in Consett, County Durham, was sentenced to 10 months in a young offender institution after pleading guilty to violent disorder.
He kicked a member of the opposing group in the stomach before aiming a flying kick at others who were fighting.
All four were sentenced at Maidstone Crown Court on Friday November 29.
Detective Sergeant Dan Barker of Kent Police said: “The actions of these four people and others involved in fighting that day were completely unacceptable.
“Members of the public should be able to go about their daily business without having to witness such mindless acts of violence, as has been demonstrated by the sentences imposed by the judge in this case.
“All four now have plenty of time behind bars to consider whether the juvenile behaviour they displayed was really worth it.”
