West Cumbrian man told to complete curfew order

A 22-year-old Whitehaven man has been ordered to complete a curfew after he breached the original order within days.

Damien Atkinson, who is now living in Sevenacres, found himself homeless after his former partner decided that the electronic monitoring equipment could not be housed at their Cambridge Road home and asked him to leave.

The eight-week curfew was imposed after he was convicted for affray last month and he was also ordered to complete a 12-month community order which involved 150 hours of unpaid work.

Atkinson also missed an appointment relating to his unpaid work days after the curfew breach.

Greg Hoare, defending, said that the new address was that of a friend who had said Atkinson could stay as long as he needed.

Judge Barbara Forrester said that Atkinson had “got off to a bad start” with the curfew and community orders and revoked both the curfew and the community order.She imposed identical orders, including a curfew between 8pm and 6am at the new address.
