Prison warning for Holme Wood man after order breach
8:00am Friday 9th May 2014 in News
A 19-year-old man has been warned he faces prison if he breached the conditions of his order for a third time.
Hearsum was sentenced to eight months detention in a young offender institution, suspended for two years, given a community order and 100 hours of unpaid work after pleading guilty to affray in January this year.
A previous hearing was told residents on Greystone Crescent, Thorpe Edge, Bradford, called police to a disturbance.
Hearsum brandished a kitchen knife at Craig Stanley after the pair had been drinking.
Hearsum appeared in court on February 27 for his first breach of his community order and had ten hours added on to his unpaid work requirement. He has not completed any of his unpaid work hours since being sentenced.
Hearsum has now been ordered to spend four days a week completing his unpaid work in the community.
Judge Jonathan Durham Hall QC told Hearsum: “Against my better judgment, I am going to give you a chance but if you don’t do what the Probation Service expect, you will go to prison and serve your eight-month sentence. I am confident you can do it.”
