Prolific Criminal Sentenced

  • Posted

Earlier this month (June), it was reported that a prolific criminal had received a custodial sentence of four years; after pleading guilty to a number of burglaries within the Leeds area.

The criminal was caught after CCTV cameras spotted him parking a vehicle which had been stolen during a burglary in early March; and after being arrested, the criminal pleaded guilty to a crime spree which dated back 17 years.

According to reports, the individual had asked officers to take into consideration a further 64 unsolved offences, dating back to 1997, and which involved goods worth a combined total of £121,140 being stolen from 20 properties throughout Leeds.

During his trial, the court also heard how three days earlier the individual had been involved in a police chase from Wakefield to Leeds, and that a mobile phone left in the vehicle had his mother’s number stored on it.

Whilst the reports have revealed that the prolific criminal has received a custodial sentence, for those who are facing allegations of burglary, it is important to seek honest and experienced legal advice from specialist solicitors at the earlier opportunity – and this is where the team at Lester Morrill can assist.
