North Norfolk's 'Most Prolific Offender' Barred From Home Town
A man labelled by Police as 'North Norfolk's most prolific offender has been handed an ASBO barring him from his home town.
Homeless Michael Acton, 18, formerly of Fakenham was given the Anti Social Behaviour Order at Norwich Magistrates Court on Thursday 20 June following three years of offences.
The order bars him from Fakenham town, an interim order barring him from Fakenham was granted earlier this year.
A spokesperson for North Norfolk District Council said: "Acton committed numerous serious acts of nuisance and anti-social behaviour causing considerable harassment, alarm and distress in and around the Fakenham area for over three years.
"Frequently involving the use of alcohol, his offences have included verbal abuse, theft, assault and criminal damage, usually in or around community facilities such as supermarkets, schools and businesses in the town centre.
"Acton has served time for offences in the past and already has a restraining order preventing him from visiting his mother’s address in Fakenham."
If Acton visits Fakenham and is found to be in breach of the ASBO he could receive a sentence of up to five years in prison plus a significant fine.
Trevor Ivory, NNDC Cabinet Member for Legal Services, said: “This ASBO will give residents and businesses in Fakenham a very welcome respite from Michael Acton’s totally unacceptable behaviour. Since the granting of the interim order against him there has been a significant drop in crime in the town and all the authorities involved are determined to make sure this continues.”
Police have confirmed that a man and a teenage boy have died after an incident at West Meadows in Ipswich yesterday afternoon.
More than 100 people have lost their lives through suicide in prisons in England and Wales so far this year, an all-time record.
