Weymouth teenager jailed after breach of community order

First published in News

A TEENAGER has been jailed after he failed to comply with a community order.

Aaron Colin Anders, of Spring Grove Court, Dorchester Road, Weymouth, was handed a 12-month community order with a supervision order, six-month drug rehabilitation requirement, with an order to attend for 30 days at an education and training unit, after pleading guilty to a burglary offence.

Prosecuting, Rufus Taylor told Dorchester Crown Court that Anders had taken two flat-screen televisions from a ground floor flat in Weymouth, where he had been drinking with friends.

The 18-year-old admitted failing to attend at drug rehabilitation appointments on two occasions.

Judge Roger Jarvis sentenced him to 14 weeks in custody.

He said: “When you appeared in front of me in June I thought a community order with various conditions might be the answer, but plainly you are not yet ready for that sort of help.

“It was a shabby offence when you took items from someone who thought of you as a friend.”
