Peel teen jailed for ASBO breach

Police spoke to 18-year-old in relation to Peveril stabbing

A teenager from Peel has been jailed after breaching an antisocial behaviour order while serving a suspended sentence.

Connor John Lewis, of Queens Drive West, appeared at Douglas courthouse before High Bailiff Jayne Hughes this week.

The 18-year-old pleaded guilty to breaching the terms of the ASBO by disobeying a curfew on 17 May.

Prosecution advocate James Robinson said police had wanted to speak to Lewis following a serious incident in Peel which saw one man stabbed.

When officers called at his home, Lewis wasn't there, despite a curfew imposed upon him through the order.

The court heard it was the fourth time he’d breached the ASBO since it came into effect last year, and the offence was committed while he served a suspended jail sentence.

Mrs Hughes said he’d been fully warned he’d be given a custodial sentence if he continued to offend, and said he’d made no effort to engage with the probation service.

She jailed him for four weeks for breaching his ASBO, and activated 14 weeks of his suspended sentence to run consecutively.
