Court case

The following people have appeared at Doncaster Magistrates’ Court charged with the following offences.

EDENTHORPE: Flouting a curfew on several occasions has landed a banned motorist with a prison sentence.

Magistrates decided to impose an eight week jail term, suspended for a year, after Francis Gordon failed to comply with a court order for a total of nearly 30 hours.

Gordon, 48, of Cedric Road, admitted failing to adhere to his suspended sentence handed out at the end of June for driving while disqualified and driving over the prescribed limit.

BALBY: A man has been ordered to carry out 120 hours of unpaid work in the community for assault and obstructing a police officer.

Robert Harper denied obstructing the officer during an incident on November 22 but was convicted of the offence. He also denied assaulting Glyn Fill during an altercation on February 11 but was convicted.

Harper, 42, of High Road, was also ordered to pay £200 costs.

MEXBOROUGH: Magistrates have ordered a man to pay £665 for refusing to clean up his back yard.

Michael Adsetts had been ordered by Doncaster Council to remove all domestic rubbish and food waste from his home in Wath Road on February 1.

The case that he breached the Environmental Protection Act was proved in his absence. He was fined £350 with £315 costs.

EDLINGTON: A racist has been ordered to pay £195 for abusing a person.

Magistrates decided to increase the fine they handed out to Christopher Bartliff, of Princes Crescent, because of the “racially aggravated” element of the incident which happened on July 6.

The 42-year-old was fined £130 with £65 costs after he admitted an offence under the Crime and Disorder Act 1998.

A charge that Bartliff was drunk and disorderly in Doncaster’s Market Place on July 28, which he denied, was dismissed after no evidence was offered.

BENTLEY: Magistrates have tagged a man for an extra five weeks after he breached the terms of his curfew.

Barry Bartliff must now remain at his home in The Homestead between 7pm and 7am until December 20 after he admitted failing to comply with a suspended sentence.

HYDE PARK: A woman has been ordered to pay £215 for being drunk and disorderly in public.

Bernadette O’Brien denied the offence under the Criminal Justice Act 1967 but was found guilty. The 22-year-old was fined £100 with £115 costs following the May 14 incident.

Magistrates decided not to impose an order banning her from licensed premises.
