Chelmsford man jailed for breach of Criminal Behaviour Order

A man has been jailed for 11 months for breaching his Criminal Behaviour Order in Chelmsford.

Jake Carter, 27 of Meadgate Avenue, Chelmsford was previously given a Criminal Behaviour Order on Friday November 24 which prohibited him from being in possession of a bike or e-scooter in Chelmsford City Centre.

On Saturday December 2, officers arrested Carter on suspicion of two breaches of his CBO. One of these included him riding his bike to a probation meeting.

He appeared at Chelmsford Magistrates on Monday December 4 where he was given an 11-month prison sentence.

Sergeant Graham Thomas said “Carter demonstrated a complete lack of respect for his Criminal Behaviour Order by breaching it within days of it being issued.

“Carter had been issued with the CBO after he was previously found guilty of six assaults in the city which were unprovoked and intimidating.

“This order was given to keep the wider public safe from Carter’s actions and limit his ability to cause further distress to the public.”
