South Shields man jailed for 'wilful and persistent failure' to obey court order

A man has been jailed for a “wilful and persistent failure” to follow a court order.

Daniel James Taylor was initially placed on a community order last November after he was convicted of causing criminal damage and twice breaching a restraining order by contacting a relative.

Now he has been hauled back to court and jailed for 12 weeks after quickly missing two induction appointments linked to the order.

Taylor, 30, of Winskell Road, South Shields, was imprisoned for what South Tyneside Magistrates’ Court labelled a “wilful and persistent failure to comply with the requirements of a community order”.

Daniel Taylor has been jailed by magistrates in South Shields.

He was locked up for six weeks after admitting the November breach and was ordered to serve another six weeks in custody after he was re-sentenced for the three earlier convictions.

These involved causing £50 of criminal damage to a door and door frame on December 17, 2019, and breaching the restraining order on May 27 and October 31.
