Bishop's Stortford man jailed for breaching criminal behaviour order
A Bishop's Stortford man has been jailed for four weeks for his "flagrant disregard" of a criminal behaviour order (CBO).
Nikhiles Chakraburtty, 42, of River View, off Southmill Road, appeared at Hatfield Magistrates' Court charged with two counts of breaching his CBO. As well as imposing the prison sentence, the bench reimposed the order for a further three years.
The May 19 hearing concluded that a custodial sentence was necessary because "the offence was so serious because the defendant has a flagrant disregard for people and their property, because the pattern of behaviour [is] escalating in seriousness".
The order states that the defendant "must not act directly or indirectly in a manner which causes or is likely to cause nuisance, annoyance, disturbance, distress, harm or fear to any other person. This includes use of foul, threatening or abusive language".
Chakraburtty must adhere to any banning letters or notices that a business or premises gives; must not physically touch any person deliberately without their permission; and must not contact the emergency services on 999 or 101, unless reporting a genuine emergency or when reporting a criminal offence that requires police investigation on 101. If emergency services are required to attend he must engage with them and act in a respectful manner.
He must not be drunk in a public place or enter streets within Bishop's Stortford town centre.
Chakraburtty was also ordered to pay a £128 surcharge to fund victim services and to pay prosecution costs of £150.
