Suspended sentence for CBO breach

Suspended sentence for CBO breach

A Retford teenager has been handed an eight-week suspended custodial sentence after breaching a number of the conditions set out in his Interim Criminal Behaviour Order.

Adam Cartwright, 19, pleaded guilty to four breaches of the Interim Order at Mansfield Magistrates Court on 7 December 2018, where he was also made the subject of a full Criminal Behaviour Order (CBO) for a period of two years.

Cartwright’s Interim CBO had been imposed by Mansfield County Court on 26 October 2018 and included a total of eight conditions that he MUST NOT breach, which included associating with a number of named individuals and entering Retford Town Centre between certain hours.

However, Cartwright’s first breach of the Interim Order occurred on 30 October 2018 when he was seen with Daniel Farrell in an area of Retford Town Centre. Further breaches followed between the 31 October and 1 November, on the 3 November and 12 November when he was seen associating with both Andrew and Daniel Farrell, again in an area of Retford Town Centre.

As a result of the breaches, Cartwright was sentenced to an eight-week custodial sentence for each breach, suspended for 12 months, to run concurrently. In addition, Cartwright was ordered to pay a victim surcharge of £115, plus a nominal fine of £10 (due to limited means) for the original breach of the Town Centre PSPO.

Cllr Simon Greaves, Leader of Bassetlaw District Council, said:

“We are happy that the courts supported us with this application and the full order has been secured thanks to partnership working with Nottinghamshire Police. We hope that the threat of prison may now help to steer Mr Cartwright down the right path.

“However, should the public see Mr Cartwright breaching any of the conditions set out in his Criminal Behaviour Order, we would ask you to tell either the Council’s Anti-Social Behaviour Team or Nottinghamshire Police.”

Sergeant Sam Pearson, of the Retford Neighbourhood Policing Team, said: “We’re pleased that the court has imposed this full Criminal Behaviour Order on Cartwright after he pleaded guilty to breaching the conditions of his Interim Criminal Behaviour Order.

“We will continue to work together with Bassetlaw District Council to target those who commit anti-social behaviour in Retford and we remain committed to ensuring the town remains a safe and pleasant place to live, work and visit.”
