A MAN has been jailed after failing to adhere to an order handed down for damaging the home of a Mossley charity and assaulting one of its staff members.
Stuart Blodwell caused £350 worth of damage to Emmaus’ headquarters on Queen Street on June 6 last year.
On the same day, he lashed out at one of those working at the facility.
Originally, the 37-year-old was given a community order on January 19 this year.
But because had had not complied ‘by failing to maintain contact with his Responsible Officer between May 5, 2023 and June 15, 2023,’ magistrates decided to send hm to prison for eight weeks.
Tameside Magistrates Court was told Blodwell was ‘out of contact, of no fixed abode and his current whereabouts unknown.’
He was originally convicted of the original offences on September 15 last year.
But after admitting the breach of the order on July 4, he was put behind bars as he, ‘failed to express willingness to comply with a proposed requirement for a community order.’
