Man Admits Arson Spree

Thursday January 2 2014

A 22-YEAR-OLD man has admitted nine charges of arson with intent to endanger life.

Brett Dungworth, 22, of Bushfield Road, Wath, started a series of fires in the town.

Dungworth set alight wheelie bins and vehicles that caused damage to houses in an arson spree in June.

One of the houses on Stump Cross Road suffered charring all the way up its brickwork.

Separate fires were also started on Winfield Road and Saville Road.

Dungworth pleaded guilty at Sheffield Crown Court last week. He will be sentenced there on February 3, 2014.

The guy has serious issues. He is a danger to everyone in the country. He needs sectioning and the help he needs.

If the court gets this wrong he will be back in the news for all the, wrong reasons the bells are ringing.

#kfc . At last. Someone with sense, what a breath of fresh air !
This guyy is a danger and if he's sent to prison he will eventually be released, having had no treatment & therapy and start his antics again. He needs detaining in a secure hospital where his root problems can be sought out and hopefully some help given. If hge is not fit to be released, the doctors wont sanction it, the prison regime would not benefit this young man at all.
