Ibrahim Jabri, 18, of Hooker Close, was jailed for 32 weeks at Exeter Crown Court after admitting four breaches of his anti-social behaviour order and one count of assault by beating.

Jabri was given 12 weeks in prison for each of the breaches to run concurrently in addition to 10 weeks for the assault and another 10 weeks for a suspended sentence from a previous incident.

The court heard how the police had expressed concern for the welfare of the public as a result of Jabri’s anti-social behaviour.

The assault by beating charge was from an incident on January 23, 2010, however no specific details were given to the court.

The four breaches happened between October 29, 2009, and June 27, 2010.

The court heard how Jabri first breached his order in October last year when he became abusive and threatening outside a shop in Sidmouth, asking members of the public for cash.

On June 20 this year, he breached his ASBO ‘being a nuisance’ and ‘associating’ with Paul Smith.

Some five days later, Jabri was said to have caused a ‘nuisance’ at Sidmouth Library, again in the company of Paul Smith, and later that day threw a rubber ball at an elderly woman.

At about 6pm that evening, he was spotted fighting in a local park, threatening passers-by.

Two days later, the same group of young men went into a shop in Sidmouth and a BB gun was stolen.

Jabri did not take the gun, but the association with Smith constituted a breach of his order, the court was told.

Recorder Jeremy Wright told Jabri: “Your conduct over the last few months, until you were arrested, was appalling.

“You were abusive, violent at times, and you have conducted yourself to the distress of a number of people in Sidmouth.”

In mitigation, Rebecca Bradberry, said: “He was doing well with the order until he reconnected with Paul Smith and his behaviour deteriorated.

“But he does not blame anyone else and does take responsibility for his own actions.”
