A man has been jailed for 18 weeks and given a Criminal Behaviour Order, excluding him from entering a number of locations in Southampton city centre for 18 months, after admitting a number of theft and public order offences.
Obidullah Dustokheil, aged 34, of no fixed abode was jailed for 18 weeks and given an 18 month Criminal Behaviour Order at Southampton Magistrates’ Court on Friday, 30 July, after admitting the following offences:
Appearing at Southampton Magistrates’ Court on Friday, 30 July, Dustokheil was jailed for 18 weeks and handed an 18 month Criminal Behaviour Order, excluding him from entering a number of areas including Above Bar, Below Bar, High Street, Commerical Road, West Quay, West Quay Retail Park, and the city parks.
Sergeant Sal Ferris from Southampton’s City Centre team said “Dustokheil is a persistent offender and we know his behaviour has had a negative impact on local communities and local businesses.
“Thanks to some great work by officers from Southampton’s City Centre and Investigations teams, we were able to gather the evidence needed to secure guilty pleas and support our successful application for a Criminal Behaviour Order.
“Criminal Behaviour Orders are designed to prevent persistent offenders from committing further offences and stop anti-social behaviour. Anyone who breaches a Criminal Behaviour Order can expect to be brought back before a court where they could face up to a maximum term of five years imprisonment.
“On Friday, 30 July, Dustokheil was made subject of a Criminal Behaviour Order for 18 months, which means that upon his release from prison, he must not enter the areas of Southampton City Centre as set out in the map.
“We hope this sentence reassures our communities that we take shoplifting, theft and anti-social behaviour seriously and will look for every opportunity to tackle offenders and bring them to justice using whatever judicial methods we can.”
