The star was apprehended after asking for a sexual favour from a woman he thought was a prostitute - but was an undercover police officer...
NATHAN MOORE – former singer with Eighties pop group BROTHER BEYOND – has today pleaded guilty to a charge of kerb crawling in central LONDON (June 4).
He was fined £250 at Highbury Corner magistrates court as well as being ordered to pay £50 costs.
Moore told magistrates: “I am really sorry for being here today. I would really like to close this now.”
The court was told how the singer approached a woman he thought was a prostitute in the capital’s King’s Cross on May 27 and requested a sexual favour.
However, the woman turned out to be an undercover police officer.
Moore rode away on his moped, but was later arrested by two other officers for soliciting a female.
The court decided that the incident had been a “one-off” and ruled against an earlier notion of imposing an Anti-Social Behaviour Order to ban Moore from the King’s Cross area.
According to BBC News, the former teen heartthrob told magistrates: “I am just going to accept my punishment.”
He had considered asking for an adjournment but said that he now wanted “to put this matter away and get it finished.”
“For me the damage is done and today will add further to the weight of my already heavy burden,” he added.
Brother Beyond enjoyed chart success between 1988-89 working with Stock, Aitken And Waterman and hit their chart peak with ‘The Harder I Try’. The single reached Number Two in July 1988.
