PRYZM Nightclub in Nottingham

A Nottingham Trent University student admitted possession of ecstasy as well as four counts of theft at Nottingham’s PRYZM nightclub.

Nafith Nazar of Liberty Point, Curzon Street, Nottingham, stood before a district judge at Nottingham Magistrates’ Court this morning.

Prosecuting, Mrs Anna Pierpont, said the defendant had been searched by PRYZM security staff after being accused of stealing a phone by a fellow student. Staff discovered four mobile phones in his possession, worth nearly £1,000 each.

In mitigation, it was said that the 20 year-old accounting and finance student had no previous convictions and claimed he had made a “silly mistake” after getting “very drunk on a night out”.

District Judge Leo Pyle told the defendant: “You may have been drunk, but that’s no excuse at all.”

He ordered a 12 month community order, stating that Nazar carries out 200 hours of unpaid community work in the city of Nottingham for his “disgraceful behaviour”.

The defendant can not return to PRYZM during this time and is also required to pay a £90 victim surcharge, and £85 in court costs.
