A man has been banned from Uppingham for three years after being convicted of a number of offences.
Dean Parsons, 50, formerly of Hornbeam Lane, Uppingham, was given a three-year criminal anti-social behaviour order, also known as a Crasbo, at Leicester Magistrates’ Court on Thursday last week.
He was also sentenced to eight weeks in prison for an assault, a public order offence and a number of thefts in Uppingham. The sentence was suspended for 12 months.
And he was issued with a 12-month supervision order and a six-month alcohol treatment order.
Police said Parsons, now of Magpie Road, Norwich, was responsible for 25 of 82 police incidents in Uppingham in March this year.
The Crasbo prevents Parsons from:
○ Entering Uppingham town (apart from to visit the doctors surgery and northern section of Ayston Road).
○ Being drunk or consuming alcohol in a public place (except licensed premises).
○ Being in possession of an open or opened vessel containing alcohol in a public place in Rutland.
○ Remaining in any shop, commercial or medical premises if asked to leave by staff.
○ Using threatening or abusive words or behaviour within the sight or hearing of a person likely to be caused harassment, alarm or distress when within the curtilage of any dwelling in Rutland.
○ Being with a named individual in a public place or place to which the public have access in Rutland.
PC 1681 Adam Ploszczanski, one of the neighbourhood officers responsible for Uppingham, said: “We were getting reports about Parson’s behaviour on an almost daily basis. The residents in Hornbeam Lane and those where his friends resided were particularly affected by his regular drunken behaviour.
“Local business people and licensees were also very concerned about the affect he was having on their trade. In some months earlier this year Parsons was responsible for 30 per cent of the police incidents in Uppingham which was also a huge drain on police resources.
“I hope the Crasbo, and its conditions, will reassure local people that they no longer need to fear harassment from Parsons. Anti-social behaviour will not be tolerated in Uppingham and, as this case shows, we can and will take action against those who persist in committing it.
“We need the public’s support to help us enforce the conditions of the Crasbo by letting us know if they believe he has broken his terms.”
The full list of crime Parsons was convicted for, all of which took place this year, is as follows:
○ March 9 - Theft of two bottles of wine from a shop, pleaded guilty.
○ March 12 - Public order offence, pleaded guilty.
○ March 18 - Theft of three bottles of wine from a shop, pleaded guilty.
○ March 18 - Theft of alcohol, pleaded guilty.
○ March 29 - Public order offence, found guilty after trial.
○ March 29 - Assault by beating, found guilty after trial.
○ April 11 - Public order offence, pleaded guilty.
○ April 11 - Racially-aggravated disorder, pleaded guilty.
Members of the public are encouraged to report any breach of the Crasbo conditions on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
