A MAN who entered a shop from which he was banned from doing so and threatened two members of staff has been given a suspended prison sentence.

Jack Mountford-Holding, of Findlay Street, Leigh appeared at Wigan and Leigh Magistrates' Court.

Mountford-Holding, 25, pleaded guilty to nine charges in total for which he was given a 32-week sentence, suspended for 12 months.

He entered Sainsburys in Leigh on February 17, which he was prohibited from doing so by as Criminal Behavioural Order imposed in April last year.

He also indicated guilty pleas to two charges of making threats.

The 25-year-old also admitted to four charges of stealing bottles of bottles of Jack Daniels between December 30 last year and February 6.

He also stole electric razors on January 14 and two bottles of alcohol on January 19.

He was also made to pay a £156 surcharge.

A court sheet said Mountford-Holding was given a custodial sentence because he displayed a "deliberate and blatant disregard for the criminal behaviour order which was put in place".

It added: "You appear to have no regard whatsoever for the property of other people and have continued to brazenly offend.

"Within days of being sentenced to a community order you breached the criminal behaviour order by entering Sainsbury’s superstore.

"To make matters worse for yourself you then threatened two members of staff.

"You have what can only be described as an appalling record of offending and there appears to be no prospect of you ever addressing your criminal activities".
