A 44-year-old who successively breached the curfew which forms part of his community order, has been handed a suspended sentence.

John Gaskin, currently care of Stonemason’s Court, Grantham, failed to comply with the curfew that he must remain at another Grantham address between 6pm and 6am from November 5 to 13.

Defending Gaskin, Chris Pye-Smith said there had been some issues regarding where he was staying, as he was asked to leave the address which had previously been decided on for his curfew, and the resident of the new address said it was not suitable for a tagging box.

Gaskin had received the community order following four counts of theft and one of making false representation.

Magistrates decided to re-sentence Gaskin, giving him suspended sentences for each offence of 28 days, which if activated would run concurrently.

The sentences are suspended for six months, and Gaskin must also pay costs of £65 to the electronic monitoring company EMS of £65.
