A MAN appeared in court accused of perverting the course of justice by pushing his own excrement down a toilet U-bend.

Kaseem Hall, 23, allegedly put his hand down the loo to “interfere with the contents in the toilet” in Brighton.

He is accused of a “series of acts with intent to pervert the course of justice”.

At Brighton Magistrates’ Court Hall appeared for his first court hearing.

Hall spoke to confirm his name but did not enter a plea to the charge.

It was alleged he perverted the course of justice by “putting his hand in the toilet, touching the contents in the toilet including his excrement, and interfering with the contents in the toilet by removing the excrement from the bag and pushing the excrement around the U-bend an trying to flush the toilet”.

It was claimed he had “succeeded” in flushing the toilet and had thereby “destroyed the evidence contained in the toilet”.

Hall was represented by Shahnaz Sargent during the hearing, while Jeremy King represented the Crown Prosecution Service.

Magistrates’ told Hall, currently of HMP Lewes, that he would be remanded in custody before appearing before the crown court on May 17.
