Cumbrian man who stopped car payments avoids prison

A man from Cumbria who stopped making payments on his car and sold it for £2,000 has avoided prison.

William Denwood, 37, of Coleridge Court, Keswick, admitted a charge of theft at Carlisle Crown Court.

Judge Peter Hughes QC heard that Denwood bought a Toyota Celica worth £9,000 from a garage in Paisley, Scotland.

He initially kept up payments up to the value of £2,828 but these then stopped in July 2012.

Denwood was then arrested and told police he had sold the car to someone in Keswick.

The court heard that he had 23 previous offences of dishonesty but had kept himself out of trouble in recent years.

Judge Hughes gave Denwood a six-month prison sentence, suspended for two years, and ordered him to carry out 200 hours of unpaid work.

Is it time to reintroduce the dog licence?

Yes - It would certainly make people more responsible about looking after their pets

No - Some people will just abandon dogs whether they've paid for a licence or not

Maybe - but also all dogs should be microchipped and tagged so owners can be traced
