ON MONDAY, magistrates fined a man from Cardigan after he failed to comply with the requirements of his community order. Stephen Raymond Evans, aged 24 of Williams Terrace admitted the breach.

Probation officer, Julie Norman said: “A 12 month community order was imposed on March 22 this year with the requirement of completing 100 hours of unpaid work and to attend ten sessions of thinking skills. “This is the second breach of his order and it was allowed to continue on the last occasion, but 30 hours had been added. He has completed those hours as well as the 100 hours originally imposed.

There have been problems with his attendance and he must attend all 10.” Evans told the court: “I’ve been working 7 days a week with split shifts and I haven’t been able to attend. It was general forgetfulness that I didn’t get in touch with probation.” Magistrates said: “You must get time off work and sort out your meeting,” and fined Evans £150 and ordered him to pay £20 victim surcharge.
