Police say a Lewes man who received a suspended prison sentence for breaching an injunction to stop his anti-social behaviour has been jailed after ignoring its terms.
Sussex Police say Clinton Snelling, 39, of Blois Road, Lewes, was required to observe a 10pm to 6am curfew, but at around 1am on Friday (March 31) was found to have made a hoax 999 call at Malling Hill, Lewes. Later the same morning he appeared before a court in Brighton and the 28-day suspended jail term was activated, police say.
PC Daran Goudie, of the Lewes Neighbourhood Policing Team, said Snelling had previously gained a reputation for anti-social behaviour through begging and drunkenness.
He said: “He has only himself to blame for being jailed. He knew what was expected of him, but chose to ignore it. We hope that others tempted to indulge in anti-social behaviour will take heed of the outcome and also our determination to put a stop to such activity, which has an adverse effect on local businesses and residents alike.”
