Carl Horth, 30, of no fixed address, appeared at Norwich Magistrates Court on Monday charged with two counts of breaching his ASBO, two counts of criminal damage and one count of breaching a Community Protection Notice.

He pleaded guilty to these offences and was sentenced to eight weeks in prison and ordered to pay £115 in compensation.

He was also handed a two-year Criminal Behaviour Order, in addition to his indefinite ASBO, which states he must not enter a large number of areas in Norwich unless attending a pre-arranged appointment.

Superintendent Dave Marshall said: “I hope the sentencing of Horth reassures local residents and those visiting and working in the city that we will take action and seek prosecution against those who continue to break the law.”
