A MAN who tried to blow up a dog's body with a firework has been back in court.
Steven Robinson appeared before Huddersfield magistrates for breaking his community service order.
Robinson, 19, of Pennine Gardens, Linthwaite, had been given a one-year community order with 100 hours of unpaid work in April.
Robinson, a bricklayer, had pleaded guilty to a charge of outraging public decency.
It related to an incident in October last year, where he put a firework on a dead Yorkshire terrier in a bid to blow up the animal.
The dog, named Emmie, had been hit by a car and was dead when Robinson found her on Gillroyd Lane, Linthwaite.
At Huddersfield Magistrates' Court yesterday he admitted failing to go to two of the unpaid work sessions that were meant to be punishment for his crime.
He did not go to sessions on September 17 and October 22 this year.
He had already had 10 hours added on to his sentence for an earlier breach of the punishment.
His solicitor, Michael Sisson-Pell, said Robinson had slept in when he missed the September session.
The October session was missed because Robinson had a stomach upset. His doctor prescribed medication, but would not write a sick note.
Mr Sisson-Pell said Robinson had now completed all but three hours of the 110 hours of unpaid work.
Magistrates ordered that an extra 15 hours be added to his punishment.
