A ROBBER has been jailed for seven years just months after completing an even longer sentence for similar offences.
Marlon Batticks, 23, was sentenced at Bradford Crown Court after he was convicted of a robbery spree last August.
He had robbed a group of youngsters close to the UCI Cinema on August 23 and a couple of days later attempted to rob a 24-year-old man in Marsh and bit his arm during a struggle.
In all, he was convicted of four robberies and two attempted robberies.
Batticks was living in Marsh after moving north from Leicester.
He was released from prison in spring 2003 after serving a nine-year sentence for robberies.
Pc Dave McSweeney, of Huddersfield police, said: "The conviction was as a result of good work by Huddersfield robbery team.
"The sentence reflects the gravity of the offence and the potentially traumatic effect it can have on victims.
"People who commit these kind of street robberies should be in no doubt they will face lengthy custodial sentences when caught."
