A Suffolk man with an “appalling” criminal record has been made the subject of a criminal behaviour order (CBO) banning him from swearing and being drunk in public.
Sentencing 28-year-old David Learmonth at Ipswich Crown Court, Judge Rupert Overbury said he had a history of committing offences while he was drunk.
Learmonth, of Burnham Way, Lowestoft, admitted being in breach of a suspended prison sentence, threatening behaviour, shoplifting, assault by beating, absconding while on bail and obstructing a police officer.
He was jailed for 78 weeks and made the subject of an indefinite criminal behaviour order banning him from swearing or drinking in a public place, being drunk in a public place, and drinking an open alcoholic drink in a public place.
The court heard that because of the time he had spent in custody he would be released from prison almost immediately.
