Carlisle man with 171 crimes to his name back in court

A man with 171 crimes to his name has been back in court.

Robert Walter Farren, 55, who has a 40-year criminal record, appeared before magistrates in Carlisle where he admitted shoplifting and drugs offences.

The court heard how Farren, of Raven Nook, off Greystone Road, Carlisle, admitted taking beer and sweets from Booze Busters, in Furze Street, on January 14, and to possessing cannabis and amphetamine.

Prosecutor Adrienne Harris said Farren was seen in the shop with a woman. They returned later after which staff realised beer and sweets worth £18.50 had been taken.

Defence solicitor Lauren Heesley said Farren had “no recollection of the day”.

He was given a six-month community order and ordered to do 80 hours of unpaid work. He also has to pay compensation, £50 court costs and a £60 victim surcharge.

Yes. The law is frequently broken anyway. It's unenforceable

Why waste the time when there's so many more important things to address?
