He said his client had then followed the culprit into the Costcutter and that is how the offence took place.Well, not entirely sure of that…
He added: “He started out almost being a UN negotiator and ended up being the only person arrested.”
During the row, he smashed bottles of alcohol inside the store worth £200. So it's rather puzzling that:
Barber, 46, of Northville Drive, Westcliff, pleaded guilty to all three offences.£50 compensation?
He was ordered to carry out 80 hours of unpaid work, pay £95 costs, and £50 compensation to the shop.
So, what happened to the other £150? Does the shopkeeper have to write that off as a loss or claim on his own insurance?
