James Howson's Racial Abuse Sentencing Adjourned For A Third Time


James Howson

British actor James Howson has delayed sentencing in his racial abuse trial for a third time after his lawyers told the court he was too ill to appear.

Earlier this year (12), the rising star, who played Heathcliff in a 2011 movie adaptation of Wuthering Heights, pleaded guilty to a charge of racially aggravated harassment after hurling a nasty insult at his former partner.

At a court hearing in February (12), it emerged Howson had been sectioned for a month under the U.K.'s Mental Health Act and his sentencing was pushed back to March (12), but he was a no-show at Leeds Magistrates' Court and presiding magistrate Angela Bradshaw subsequently issued a warrant for his arrest.

He was due back in court for sentencing on Monday (30Apr12), but the hearing was adjourned until 28 May (12) as he continues to undergo psychiatric treatment.

He was discharged from a hospital in Newcastle, north west England on Thursday (22Mar12), but he was a no-show at Leeds Magistrates' Court on Monday (26Mar12), when he was due for sentencing. Presiding magistrate Angela Bradshaw subsequently issued a warrant for his arrest.

British actor James Howson is set to spend a month in hospital after he was sectioned under the U.K.'s Mental Health Act.

The 24-year-old rising star, who played Heathcliff in a 2011 movie adaptation of Wuthering Heights, has pleaded guilty to racially aggravated harassment stemming from a bust-up with his ex-girlfriend, and was due to be sentenced on Monday (27Feb12).

However, the hearing at Leeds Magistrates' Court in England was adjourned after it emerged Howson is receiving care at a hospital in Newcastle, England and is being held under the Mental Health Act.

His lawyer, Anthony Sugare, says, "The position is that on arriving at court this morning, I was told that the court itself had heard from the hospital that he had been taken in there under the Mental Health Act for a period of 28 days for observation."

Wuthering Heights Review


Excellent
Emily Bronte's novel is one of the most unsettling books you'll ever read, so it's about time a filmmaker made a darkly disturbing movie out of it. And Arnold's movie is like no other period adaptation we've ever seen: gritty, messy and thoroughly involving.

When the farmer Earnshaw (Hilton) brings a street urchin (Howson) home after a trip to Liverpool, he adopts him as a son and has him christened Heathcliff. He bonds quickly with Earnshaw's daughter Catherine (Beer), but her older brother Hindley (Shaw) continually abuses him. This only gets worse after Earnshaw's death, and when Cathy decides to marry the rich neighbour Linton (Northcote), Heathcliff runs away. Years later, he returns (now Howson) to confront Cathy (now Scodelario) about her true feelings.
