Huddersfield's worst offender has been jailed after breaching his anti-social behaviour order twice.
Clinford Joseph, who has committed more than 280 offences, was sent to prison by a district judge for 44 weeks.
He told Joseph, of Hillhouse Lane in Fartown, that he had thrown away his chance of overcoming his chronic alcoholism.
The 32-year-old’s sentencing comes just months after magistrates handed him a lifeline.
In January he appeared in court after ignoring a ban on entering The Cherry Tree pub in John William Street.
Joseph was barred from the pub as part of a three-year Asbo granted last July.
He faced going to custody after ignoring the terms of the order but magistrates gave him a chance to overcome the drink problem which leads to his offending.
They heard that Joseph had been given the chance to go to a rehabilitation clinic.
But on March 20 Joseph offended again.
This time he breached his Asbo by drinking from a can of alcohol in Byram Court.
District Judge Fanning heard that Joseph’s lengthy list of previous convictions include 67 for breaching his Asbo.
He had been due in court two weeks ago but was hospitalised and diagnosed with pancreatitis.
Joseph’s solicitor Eleanor Reyland said that his drinking was having an affect on the longevity of his life.
She added that he is now being helped by a psychologist to address his background issues.
But judge Fanning activated Joseph’s previously suspended prison sentence of 20 weeks.
He added a further 24 weeks for his new offences, adding his total time in custody to 44 weeks.
