An arsonist who torched wheelie bins on his way home from nights out drinking has been ordered to stay indoors at night.Was he hard to catch?
He was caught after firemen realised that the attacks usually ended with a blaze in Poynter Road, Hove.So, a 28 year old who starts fires when drunk. Does he have a valid excuse why he shouldn't be locked up for a considerable amount of time?
Clark, 28, who lives there with his parents, was detained by firemen after a fire at nearby Conway Court flats on May 23.
Oh, you bet:
Ed Fish, defending, said Clark had suffered a brain injury in a road accident when he was 11 which had affected his behaviour and short term memory.Surely someone this damaged after 17 years is unable to function?
Mr Fish said Clark could remember nothing about the fires but accepted that he was responsible for them.
The court was told that Clark works as a volunteer at a horse rescue centre and at Brighton General Hospital.One hopes he isn't in charge of the incinerator...
