SMITH has a string of previous offences and his recent criminal past includes a jail term.

In September 2009, he was sentenced to eight months in a young offender institution after admitting a charge of racially aggravated assault by beating.

Smith and an associate attacked Kapo Lee from Sea View restaurant at Weymouth’s Pier Bandstand in March last year.

The offence also put him in breach of a separate conditional discharge for criminal damage, but no action was taken and it was left to run.

He also breached his bail conditions over the incident when he was found drunk in a public place and his bail was withdrawn.

The 127 days he spent on remand were taken into account, as well as days spent with an electronic tag, so he had already completed his sentence.

In November 2009 we reported that Smith admitted failing to comply with the terms of his licence following his release from prison, and was fined £100 and ordered to pay £15 costs.

In February, he admitted burgling a house in Sharpitts, Portland, and a shed in Court Barton in December last year with two other teenagers.

He received a community order, with an unpaid work requirement of 250 hours, a six-month curfew order and a requirement to attend 30 days of an employment, training and education course.

His latest offence was using threatening words or behaviour with the intent to cause harassment, alarm or distress.
