Disorderly Helston man had 50 previous convictions

First published in News

A Helston man who pleaded guilty at Truro Magistrates’ Court to behaving in a disorderly manner at Penzance on May 29 had 50 previous convictions, CPS laywer David Swan said.

Dean Harvey had been met at Penzance bus station by his partner in a car, after which an argument developed between them and he accused her of being unfaithful to him.

He snatched the keys from the ignition, threw them on the floor, stamped on them and threw them into a bush. When she went to retrieve them he took out the car battery and smashed it several times.

A member of the public saw what was happening and called the police.

Harvey, aged 38, of Cury View, Tregoose Farm, Helston, told the magistrates he had been stupid.

He had spent 28 days in custody on recall.

The magistrates fined him £50, agreeing that he should spend the morning in the court house in lieu of payment.

50 previous convictions, and he spent the morning in court in lieu of a £50 fine.
Was it really worth the time and expense taking it to court? might it not be more constructive to have enforced attendence at an anger management course?

No, as it happens, I didn't.

I will try to post correctly and appropriately in the future, as it is evident that I currently do not.

Most of us make spelling mistakes on here at some point , even the Packet Staff dont always get it right. either. sometimes in my case its more haste less speed or lack of concentration.

Thought you said you weren't going to respond to my comments anymore. Now you've gone and publicly told everyone the packet staff don't always get it right.

You are clearly ignorant on dyslexia and poor grammar which is mainly courses locally by the poor level of teaching in Helston in the 1970s.

It's not your grammar it's your spelling, and poor education is no excuse, they sell dictionary's in WHS. I was educated in Helston years ago and my spellings better than yours.

Caused not courses or coursed.

Most of us make spelling mistakes at times , its a shame that you feel you had a poor level of teaching and dyslexia is not a condition that should be taken lightly ,i know someone with it and she does struggle daily .
