Thief thanks Carlisle judge for jailing him

A criminal went to court to ask the judge to send him to prison.

Andrew Monkhouse said he knew he needed to be locked up “to sort himself out” and come off drugs.

And the 37-year-old from Sarsfield Road, Workington, got his wish when the judge at Carlisle Crown Court jailed him for 17 weeks.

Monkhouse. who had 64 previous convictions, pleaded guilty to stealing a £250 drill from the City Electrical Factors shop in Workington on September 20 last year.

As he left the courtroom to start his sentence Monkhouse turned to the judge and said: “Thank you very much.”
