Failure to turn up to do his unpaid work means convicted thief Daniel Frankish must carry out another 20 hours of it.
Frankish, 33, of Beck Gardens, Grantham, admitted missing two appointments to do unpaid work as part of a community order imposed by magistrates in October for the theft of items from Morrisons.
Frankish was ordered to do 100 hours of unpaid work as part of the nine month order, but he missed two days of work on February 16 and 23 without reasonable excuse.
Frankish told the court: “I am definitely going to do it. It’s only down the road from me at Grantham hospital.”
Magistrates warned Frankish that if he did not complete the work he could face a prison sentence.
