Bromsgrove burglar who faces jail 'given one last chance'
4:30pm Friday 23rd August 2013 in Local
A BROMSGROVE burglar, told by a judge he was staring prison in the face, has been given a suspended sentence.
Zak Daniels, also known as Jones, 23, of Austin Road, Charford, was said to have 15 previous convictions for 22 offences.
He was given a nine month jail sentence, suspended for two years, after admitting burglary, theft and interfering with a car.
He will be supervised by the probation service for 12 months.
Andrew Tucker, prosecuting, said a party had been going on during July in Broad Street, Bromsgrove.
A kitchen door had been left unlocked so Daniels walked in and stole a wallet and bottle of wine. He also searched a car left on the drive.
Daniels, who had committed 20 offences since 2006, also admitted he stole food worth £6.75 from a Redditch supermarket.
Gary Harper, mitigating, said the offences were committed when Daniels was drunk. He had realised his problem was drink and he was taking steps to cure it.
Recorder Roger Evans said he was giving Daniels one last chance by suspending the jail sentence.
