Anti-social neighbour brought to justice
Published: 17 December 2021
A resident of Derby, who had been causing anti-social behaviour to his neighbours and the general public has been handed a prison sentence and hefty fine.
Residents of Chaddesden can breathe a sigh of relief this week thanks to the Community Safety and Integration team at Derby City Council who managed to secure a prison conviction for an anti-social neighbour.
The resident continuously harassed his neighbours and damaged property over many years. In order to combat and deter his behaviour a Civil Injunction Order was put in place. Unfortunately, the male felt that he could continue to act the way he did and cause upset to those around him, breaching the order on two accounts which has now resulted in a six month suspended sentence and a hefty fine.
Councillor Matthew Eyre, Cabinet Member for Place and Community Development said:
“My thanks to all of those who were involved in securing the conviction of this male, who has continuously caused distress and harm to his neighbours over a long period of time.
Hopefully, this sentence will show him and any other individuals causing anti-social behaviour that this will not be tolerated within our city.
We will always strive to deter and stop this type of behaviour, ensuring victims feel listened to and heard. I would like to thank the victims in this case for their continued perseverance and willingness to help us in tackling this, without their continued support we would not have gotten such a positive result.”.
