Andrew Tiley , 36, of Smythen Street, Exeter, failed without reasonable excuse to comply with the community requirement of a suspended sentence order which was made last September by failing to attend appointments as directed by a supervising officer on four occasions and failed to attend a drug rehabilitation review on one occasion. He also failed to provide evidence of a reasonable excuse for doing so within agreed time limits. The suspended sentence order was imposed following convictions for entering a building as a trespasser and stealing a phone, and assault. The order was revoked and implemented as a sentence of 14 weeks because of the serious nature of his offending.

Kye Roberts , 20, of Marguerite Road, Tiverton, was fined £60 for driving in Great Western Way on September 1 last year in a car that was equipped with a filament lamp, namely headlamps, that did not comply with recognised regulations. He will also have to pay a £15 victim surcharge and £60 costs.

He pleaded guilty and was committed to prison for 16 weeks suspended for 18 months. The offence was deemed to be serious as it was planned and committed on bail, involved stalking a victim, and previous offences were recorded against him regarding other women. The suspended sentence order has a number of different requirements which include his participation in a mental health programme. A restraining order was also made which will prevent him from contacting the victim by any means, following her to her place of work or home address or being within 100 metres of her. An application has been made for sexual offences prevention order and this is to be the subject of a further court hearing.

Kate Williams , 33, of no fixed abode but who resides in Exeter, stole beach goods to the value of £9.49 belonging to Aladdin's Cave on May 12 last year. She changed her plea and admitted this offence having already pleaded guilty to stealing fragrances worth £334 with another from Boots on January 4; a handbag and necklaces worth £42 from BHS on January 14 and various items from Store 21 on the same date worth £77.95.
