A MAN who repeatedly breached his Criminal Behaviour Order (CBO) has been convicted.

Clive Mayhew was given the two-year order on January 12 following a spate of offending in Worthing.

It prohibited him from being in possession of open containers of alcohol in a public place in West Sussex, being drunk in public places and causing harassment, alarm or distress.

However, the 61-year-old was caught by police in breach of the conditions on five separate occasions in Worthing town centre between May 18 and June 13.

Mayhew was charged with five counts of breaching a Criminal Behaviour Order and appeared before Worthing Magistrates’ Court on June 28.

He was given a further 12-month community order which includes a six-month alcohol treatment requirement and 15 rehabilitation activity days.

He was also required to pay an £80 fine, £85 costs and a £95 victim surcharge.

His CBO remains in place.

Police Constable Rob Luff, of Adur and Worthing Neighbourhood Policing Team, said: “When we applied for a CBO against Mayhew, our aim was not to criminalise him, but to protect the public and himself from further offences. This is in line with one of our force priorities, which is to protect communities.

“We hope this additional community order will go some way towards getting him the help and support he needs to tackle his addiction.”
