More craziness from Law and Disorder Britain.

Should have gone to Specsavers!

IlieA masturbating optician has been told he may face jail after being found guilty of committing a sex act while testing a teenage girl’s eyes.

John Gill, of Hunters Way in Selby, was found unanimously guilty by a jury after a five-day trial at Leeds Crown Court to having engaged in sexual activity in front of the youngster at the premises of Clear Vision in The Arcade, Knottingley, West Yorkshire.

Two women also told the court at a previous hearing that they saw Gill committing a sex act on himself while he was sitting in a chair in the window of Clear Vision on a date between 2006 and 2007. He was subsequently found guilty of an act outraging public decency.

Gill was released on conditional bail. He will return to Leeds Crown Court in the week commencing January 18 for sentencing for both offences.

Does my belly look big with this radio controlled car shoved up my dress?

IlieA “pregnant” shoplifter had more than a bun in the oven after she visited a Chadderton electronics and convenience store.

The young woman, whose bump was covered with a brown flowing dress, slid a radio-controlled model car under her clothes. Despite having loads of money in her hand she also raided sweets, crisps and chocolate on display.

Shopkeeper Aurangzeb Akhtar is warning other stores to keep a watch for her and two male companions in the run up to Christmas. The trio struck on Monday about 5pm. All were light skinned, and the men, who spoke in Arabic, had very poor English. After running through his CCTV, Mr Akhtar is convinced the woman had a large bag or a pouch under her outsize dress, and that all three were working together.

Careless driving special constable avoids ban.

A special constable escaped a driving ban yesterday despite admitting ignoring warning lights and driving through a level crossing in a police van.

Matthew Newman, from Leiston, was driving six fellow officers home in the Mercedes van in the early hours of February 21 following a shift in Ipswich. The 39-year-old, who is an inspector in Suffolk special constabulary and also a civilian station officer for the force, exceeded numerous speed limits before jumping lights at the crossing in Mill Road, Saxmundham, scaring his passengers.

He pleaded guilty to careless driving at Norwich Crown Court. He had been due to stand trial after denying dangerous driving but this count was withdrawn.

Judge Alistair Darroch ordered that seven points be added to his licence and that he pay a £200 fine and £185 legal costs. He will also pay a £15 victim surcharge. He said: “Everybody is very grateful to people who become special constables. As a police man in any capacity you have to set a good example.”

Obviously the judge hasn’t seen the taxpayer paid for adverts warning people about the danger of jumping level crossings!

Just £1 confiscated from £40k thief who got a suspended sentence.

The £1 confiscation order was made against a sacked Black Country travel agent who stole more than £40,000 from his own family and from holidaymakers whom he tricked into handing over cash.

Shaun Allsopp stole £10,000 from Peter Chawner Travel , in Lower High Street, Wednesbury, which is owned by a relative. He also siphoned £11,000 from his father’s bank account.

The 24-year-old later took a job with Future Travel, which allowed him to work from home, but instead of depositing cash from customers into an account he pocketed the money himself. After he was found out and sacked, Allsopp continued to take cash from clients by pretending he still worked for Future Travel.

In July, Allsopp, of Hollies Drive, Wednesbury, was given a 12-month prison sentence suspended for 18 months after pleading guilty to three cases of theft, totalling £40,502, and 11 counts of fraud.

He was also ordered to do 240 hours unpaid work and given a 12-month supervision order. Yesterday, a proceeds of crime hearing at Wolverhampton Crown Court was told that he had benefited by £34,100 from the offences.

Sixteen months sentence for killer.

IlieA taxi driver was sentenced to only 16 months in prison for a road rage attack which left a pensioner with brain damage and unable to have a life-saving heart op.

Thomas Draper, aged 67, died of his heart condition six weeks after Ranbir Singh’s attack.

Doncaster Crown Court heard 25-year-old Singh, of Stoops Lane, Bessacarr, floored his victim with a single punch.
The impact with the road left him with a fractured skull and damage to his brain – and meant he could not have the heart bypass operation he was waiting for. Three people had to leap out of the way as Singh drove from the scene.
