Convicted burglar under supervision after 10 years of offending
A CONVICTED burglar with a ten-year record of offending has been placed under the supervision of probation officers to make him change his ways.
Michael Mynott, of Hamstown Farm Bungalow, Maesbury, appeared before Taunton Crown Court for sentencing for burglary and was told by Judge David Ticehurst, “You committed offences when you were 18 and you are now 28. That’s 10 years of committing offences and causing problems to society.
"I have no doubt a large part of that is as a result of your involvement with drugs and the order I make is intended to break that addiction so you can lead a decent and sociable life.”
Mynott was sentenced to a community order for two years with supervision and 22 months drug rehabilitation.
He was also ordered to stay at an address in Weston-super-Mare for six months and told to stay out of trouble.
The judge added, “After 10 years offending, you have a chance to turn your life around. Take it with both hands and don’t drop it”.
