Man jailed for breaching order within a day

A man who broke the rules of a Criminal Behaviour Order after one day has been sent to jail.

Peter Holleran, 49, was given the order on Friday 11 May after committing a series of anti-social behaviour offences in the town centre.

But on Saturday he breached one of the conditions by going to the Crewe Civic Centre car park.

When he was arrested at around 6.50pm, he hurled abusive language at a police officer 'in an aggressive manner'.

Holleran, of no fixed abode, appeared at Crewe Magistrates’ Court on Monday 14 May.

He admitted:

  • using abusive language in a public place;
  • being in possession of an open container;
  • assaulting a constable in the execution of their duty;
  • failing to comply with supervision requirements following release from prison
  • two counts of commission of a further offence while subject to a conditional discharge order.

Holleran was jailed for three months and ordered to pay a £115 victim surcharge.

Cheshire Police Chief Inspector Simon Newell, of the Crewe Local Policing Unit, said: “Over the past few months Holleran has been a real problem within the town centre, displaying anti-social behaviour and being involved in alcohol-related disorder.

“Such behaviour is really distressing to the public who witness it and impacts on the footfall of the businesses in the area.

“Despite the best efforts of police and other partner agencies, Holleran has refused to engage with any support services wanting to house him.

“He showed no regard for the Criminal Behaviour Order that was imposed on him, breaching it within a day, and I am really pleased with the custodial sentence handed out by the court as it sends a strong message to the minority who cause the biggest problems in Crewe that anti-social behaviour will not be tolerated.

“We have worked tirelessly with partner agencies to address the issue of homelessness in Crewe and there are a lot of services available to support those living on the streets. However, if they refuse to engage and behave in a way that blights the town centre the police and courts will take robust action to help make Crewe a safer place to live.”
