An Andover man has been sentenced for a series of offences, including stealing a leg of lamb from Iceland.

Steven James Watt, of Dene Court, appeared at Basingstoke Magistrates’ Court on June 30 after having been charged with offences ranging from theft to assault and failing to surrender to the court.

The charges start from February 15, when Watt was charged with the theft of a £24 leg of lamb from the branch of Iceland on Bridge Street. On the same day, he also was accused of assaulting two women.

He had pleaded guilty to the theft, but had pleaded not guilty to both assaults. However, Basingstoke Magistrates’ Court found him guilty of both offences. He was fined £24 for the theft, and £75 for one of the assaults. For the other assault, he was given a community order requiring him to undergo rehabilitation activity as required.

Subsequently, on March 1, he was again charged with assault, this time of a man in Andover. He pleaded guilty to this offence, and was given a rehabilitation activity requirement and ordered to pay compensation of £125.

Then, on April 1 and May 10, he failed to surrender himself at Basingstoke Magistrates’ Court, and was given two further rehabilitation activity orders after pleading guilty.
