…when the CPS applied for the replacement for ASBOs, a criminal behaviour order, to be made against him, district judge Adrian Lower disagreed, saying the new type of order wouldn't help Wassell to stop offending.
"The fact is, I am afraid, Wassell will change when he wants to change," he said. "If he doesn't want to change, it is very likely he will simply carry on in the way he has carried on."
Wassell called out: "You are a very wise man, you are."*sighs*
It was one of a series of interventions by Wassell, 40, which led the judge to expel him from court and to continue hearing the case in his absence.Perhaps now he regrets his magnanimous gesture? Perhaps now he realises what the other law authorities & the public have to put up with?
For Wassell, Liam Hassan said: "I fully concede he is a nuisance in the town centre and historically has been."
Wassell was jobless, homeless, a street drinker addicted to alcohol and had a personality disorder.
He needed a multi-agency approach to solving his many needs, which he was starting to get.Personally, I think it’s not so much a ‘multi-agency approach’ that’s needed, as a bullet to the back of the head.
