A MOTHER who pleaded guilty to handing her son a knife during a fight in South Tyneside has walked free from court.

Kerry Giles was accused of trying to pass a knife to her son during a disturbance in Stothard Street, Jarrow, last year.

The 36-year-old pleaded guilty to having a knife in a public place and received a 10-month sentence, suspended for two years at Newcastle Crown Court.
