Unpaid work yob fears criminals
A THUG has refused to do community service because he was scared of mixing with other criminals.
Shawn Gray, 27, was ordered to do unpaid work after boasting on Facebook about attacking two lecturers.
But he was sent back to court because he missed a series of work appointments on a farm, telling bosses he didn’t want to be around other offenders.
Gray, of Plymouth, Devon, was ordered to do an additional 50 hours by Judge Graham Cottle, who warned him to “do as he was told” by probation officers.
Edward Bailey, defending, said: “He was terrified of associating with fellow criminals and felt he would be better working at a charity shop.”
The judge also told him: “Would you rather spend 23-hours-a-day in a cell?”
