DANIEL Nunn escaped a jail sentence this week, after admitting that he had managed to complete just two hours of unpaid work within three months.
Nunn - who was given a 100-hour work order last October for an offence of handling stolen goods - admitted breaching that order by missing two appointments with the probation service.
"He attended an induction course, but failed to attend a health and safety session," Maxine Bailey from the probation service explained at Ely Magistrates' Court.
Nunn had no income between December 22 and February 10, because his benefit was stopped, explained solicitor Adam Haselhurst.
