Suspended sentences were imposed to replace a community service order a 26-year-old man could not complete because he had got a job.

Francis Hughes, Lismore Manor, Craigavon, had received a community service order for offences of disorderly behaviour and resisting police.

At Craigavon Magistrates Court last Friday the probation service applied to have the order revoked. The court heard Hughes was unable to complete the order because he now had a job. For both offences he was sentenced to two months in custody, suspended for one year.
