Man banned from City Centre bookmakers
Steven Lee Bourne aged 25 from St Anns was issued with a two-year Criminal Behaviour Order (CBO) on Tuesday 1 November 2016 at Nottingham Magistrates Court. The CBO bans him from entering or remaining within any bookmakers/turf accountants in the City of Nottingham, excluding the Dales ward.
In August Bourne entered Ladbrokes Bookmakers, on Clumber Street, Nottingham from which he was barred and used threatening and abusive, words or behaviour to staff which caused them alarm and distress. He also used threatening and abusive words and behaviour to staff on the NET tram network at the Radford Road, Hyson Green NET Tram Stop.
Bourne pleaded guilty to both charges and was given a £415 fine. He was sentenced to 12 weeks custody, suspended for 12 months. Bourne was also given a curfew to remain indoors from 7pm -7am for a period of six months.
Bourne has a long history of anti-social behaviour committed within city centre bookmakers, dating back to 2011. These include numerous incidents and convictions for damaging / destroying property within city bookmaker’s premises.
He was further issued with a three year Criminal Behaviour Order upon conviction (CBO) which prohibits him from entering or remaining within any bookmakers/turf accountants in the City of Nottingham, excluding the Dales ward.
Nottingham City Council’s Community Protection applied to the Court for the CBO to offer protection to staff and customers of the bookmakers concerned due to his past behaviour and frequency of offending within. Bourne is now prohibited from these businesses for a period of 3 years. If he breaches these conditions he risks being brought back before the Court to receive further sentencing.
The CBO means simply Criminal Behaviour Order. A CBO is sought at either the Crown or Magistrates Court and is awarded on the back of and in addition to any criminal convictions served upon the Defendant at the time of appearing in Court.
If an individual is at Court due to certain offences and is found guilty a CBO, if applied for, may be granted to sit alongside any other prohibitions placed upon him by the Court. CBOs offer interventions or demand the recipient to desist in anti social behaviour.
