An “absolute menace” with 178 previous offences to his name stole an Oxford City footballer’s car – and drove it at up to 100mph around the city.Sorry. What?
… with 178 previous offences to his name…Damn, thought I misheard…
The 38-year-old, who has a 20-page criminal record containing 43 convictions for 178 offences, was arrested in Harefields, in Cutteslowe, after crashing into a tree.I just can’t wait for the inevitable excuses…
He was jailed for 32 months at Oxford Crown Court on Friday after admitting burglary, aggravated vehicle-taking, dangerous driving and driving without insurance and while disqualified.
Lucy Tapper, defending, said her client had “suffered an awful lot of sadness in his life”.‘Suffered it..?’ Sounds to me as though he mostly dished it out.
But carry on with the sob story, by all means:
She said his partner of 10 years died two years ago and their son had previously died of cot death.And that led him off the rails? Really? He had a great life up until then?
She said Nutt, who has epilepsy, hepatitis C and cannot work, was previously a drug addict.Errr, yeah. If you say so, love. Did it also make him commit the burglary too?
“It was probably his epilepsy medication that caused him to drive in such a manner,” she added.
Judge Mary Jane Mowat said: “Despite your personal difficulties, the court’s primary concern is the safety of the public. You clearly are an absolute menace on the roads.”
Nutt was banned from driving for 10 years.Given he’d only just got out of prison a few days before stealing again, I’m sure he’ll heed that, Judge….
