TEEN JAIL WARNING.

A14-year-old boy with a massive 46 previous convictions has been warned in court - mend your ways or spend your life in jail.

The teenager, who cannot be named for legal reasons, has a string of convictions for theft, escaping from custody and robbery and is ALREADY serving a two year sentence at Trinity House.

Judge William Earley, sentencing the boy to two years' detention for burgling a house and stealing a car, said: "Use the next two years as an opportunity to get some sort of education or training and do something with your life."

The boy's solicitor claimed he would use the time to turn his life around.

But Inspector Pat Mangan said the criminal teen was STILL on the rampage - and caused more than EUR1,000 worth of damage to his cell the night before his court appearance.
