Crime In Dorset: 4 Offenders Star In Court


The sun obviously rises in East Dorset, so we start there with Alexander Stampp, a 32 year-old of Thornton Heath, Surrey. Driving a Mercedes C180 on the A338 at Ashley Heath on May 27, he had 2.8 micrograms of THC in blood. Fined £100, plus £30 surcharge and £85 costs and disqualified from driving for 12 months.

Paul Anthony Gooch would neither be caught napping nor told what to do by an ordinary bobby. The 37-year old of Alder Crescent, Poole, assaulted a PC dutifully executing his duty in Bournemouth on September 23. He is to commit to community service along with mandatory rehabilitation activity for a maximum of20 days. The order also dictates 150 hours of unpaid work within the next 12 months with fines: £50 compensation, £85 surcharge, and £85 costs.

At 32 and living in Bournemouth, John Martin Bailey, aged 32 and of Queensland Road, Bournemouth, drove a vehicle on Old Christchurch Road, Bournemouth on June 30 without appropriate insurance. He now has his driving record endorsed and fined £100. He will also be detained in the courthouse. Considering time already spent in custody, his detention is deemed served.

Finally, boasting something reminiscent of a mafia boss’ rapsheet, Joseph Scibilia, is 39 and of Westover Road, Bournemouth. He admitted multiple violations of the terms of several suspended sentences, specialising and carrying out multiple operations of theft of items such as meat, toothbrush heads, electric razor blades, whiskey, and trainers from high-end stores like Marks and Spencer and Waitrose. He has been committed to prison for two weeks concurrent, with his overall length of prison sentence being 16 weeks.
