A teenage burglar was spotted on a CCTV camera carrying a stolen 50-inch TV across an estate.
Jordan Hart was with two others when he took the Samsung HD TV from the home of a single mother-of-five who was away on holiday.A single mother of five can afford a 50 inch TV?
Police were sent to arrest the trio but they dumped the TV at the side of the road and fled into nearby Frinton Road,So? Couldn't they get the little scrote to name them?
Officers later found discarded PlayStation 3 games between wheelie bins close by and checks revealed Hart's fingerprints.
The CCTV footage was not clear enough to identify his two accomplices.
Judge John Milmo QC gave Hart, of Bentinck Road, Hyson Green, an 18-month community order and said he must attend 22 "thinking skills" sessions.*blood reaches boiling point*
Why are you sending him on a 'thinking skills course', you bewigged fool? So he can make sure his next theft isn't right in front of a CCTV camera?!?
I've said it before, and I'll say it again; we need a 'thinking skills course' for the bloody judiciary...Translation: 'Well, since you buy all the other improbable things about this story, judge, I might as well try my luck...'
The judge said the offence was more serious because it was committed at night and was at the home of a single mum with five children.Obviously. I mean, what other possible explanation could there be..?
He said the woman had obviously saved up money to buy an expensive television.
The court heard Hart had past convictions for common assault and robbery./facepalm
More recently he had been helped by Framework, a charity that supports homeless and vulnerable people, and had kept out of trouble.Apart from the small matter of a theft of a TV, that is? And presumably other things that they didn't spot him doing?
Esmond Patterson, an assistant manager at Framework accommodation in Bentinck Road, Hyson Green, told the judge he had "all the time in the world" for the defendant.
He said Hart had now realised he had to start doing something constructive with his time.
