Have You Tried Rubbing His Nose In It?

The court heard that Mason failed to remove faeces deposited by a dog under his control in Coopers Close, Witnesham, near Ipswich, on four occasions last year - May 20, July 7, July 21 and September 25.
He was convicted of the offences on January 6.


Ms Jempson said a Criminal Behaviour Order (CBO) was now being sought due to the amount of like offences.
She added that Mason has a "clear history" of offending and has shown a "complete lack of engagement" with the complainant.

Oh..? It's not just inability, then? 

Mason, who was sentenced in absence...

Guess not! 

Magistrates also fined Mason £60 for the May 20 offence, £120 each for the July 7 and July 21 offences, and £180 for the September 25 offence, making a total of £480.
Mason...was also ordered to pay costs of £1,980 and a victim surcharge of £48.
This left Mason with a total bill of £2,508 and a 28-day collection order was made for the money.

Do you think they'll ever get the money? I don't.

And this once again proves the utter inability of the justice system to deal with dedicated incorrigibles.

Exactly right which is why these days the law is only really applied to the law abiding. Go after the easy ones who will pay is the way it's done now.

Sadly true.
