Mix-up over report appointment
BURGLAR Tommy Saunders could not be sentenced this week, because he had missed an appointment with the probation officer who was due to write his pre-sentence report.
At an earlier hearing before Ely magistrates, 21-year-old Saunders, of Manor Close, Witchford, had admitted carrying out a burglary at Jewsons in Ely on November 19.
"He did not receive the letter fixing the appointment until the day after the appointment was due," solicitor James Yardy told the court on Thursday.
Sentencing was adjourned until May 11 and his unconditional bail was extended.
