Jail threat for man who crashed car into Norwich job centre
A man has been warned he faces jail after admitting he crashed his car into the front door of Norwich's jobcentre, a court has heard.
Christopher Leeds, of Fitzgerald Road, Norwich, appeared at Norwich Crown Court today where he pleaded guilty to dangerous driving and damaging property being reckless as to whether life was endangered following a crash in Pottergate.
The 35-year-old, who was remanded in custody, had his case adjourned for reports to be carried out but was told to expect a custodial sentence.
Judge Peter Jacobs said: 'You are likely to get a prison sentence but I think it's to get a report to look at your circumstances and see what pressures you were under.'
Michael Clare, representing Leeds, said: 'He's not a man of piercing intellect and he attended, was brushed off, told to come back and that someone would meet him. They didn't.'
As previously reported a golden Rover 75 was driven into the Jobcentre Plus in Kiln House in Pottergate at about 9.40am on Monday, March 25.
