A MAN who failed to comply with a community order imposed for having indecent images of children on his mobile phone has been jailed.
Rishi Bagga was told it was his own fault he was going inside because he failed to complete a sex offenders’ programme after he avoided a jail term last year. The 24-year-old failed to attend for appointments with the probation service and didn’t tell them he had moved back to Swindon.
Mark Ashley, prosecuting, told Swindon Crown Court Bagga, who was on a three year community order, missed meetings on two occasions in October last year. He said he also failed to tell them and the police where he was living when he returned from Bristol, where he had been working selling mobile phones.
Bagga, formerly of Woodside Avenue, Walcot, admitted being in breach of a community order.
Andrew Hobson, defending, said his client had been in custody for two weeks awaiting the hearing and had had a chance to reflect on his position.
Jailing him for eight weeks, Judge Douglas Field said: “It is entirely your own fault that you are back here in front of me.”
