Man Gets Suspended Sentence

Barnsley Magistrates' Court Barnsley Magistrates' Court


A MAN has been given a suspended jail sentence for failing to complete 150 hours of unpaid work imposed more than a year ago.

Nathan James Tibble, 21, had been hit by problems at home and with his health, Barnsley Magistrates' Court was told.

Philip Howard, defending, said Tibble had been homeless after being kicked out by his mother.

Mr Howard said Tibble had a 'depressive illness' and had handed in a sick note for six weeks to the Probation Service.

"He has struggled to do the unpaid work through no fault of his own," Mr Howard added.

Charles McDermid, prosecuting for the Probation Service, said Tibble had about 64 hours of the unpaid work still to do.

He said the sentence was imposed for stealing coils of copper cable and wire.

Tibble, of Pitt Street, Low Valley, admitted failing to comply with the terms of a community order. He was given a ten-week jail term, suspended for a year and was ordered to do an extra 80 hours of unpaid work.

Judge John Foster, said: "Whichever way you look at it, the unpaid work should have been done some time ago."

Tibble was ordered to pay £70 in costs.

Thieving copper wire is low as usually its from hospitals, care homes, schools or anywhere else that they can access in ten mins. To give him hours again cos he was depressed is bullshit, he wasnt too depressed to commit the crime in the first place. If it had anything to do with cannabis hed b in donny nick by now our justice system stinks to hell. This man could have caused untold amounts of damage to neighbouring areas thats definately worth prison time but judges ant a clue. Bring back rosenberg
