A MAN with a huge number of convictions to his name has appeared in court for the second time in two weeks.
Clinford Joseph was revealed to have clocked up 263 criminal convictions when he appeared before Kirklees magistrates on August 14.
Joseph, of Waterloo Rise in Waterloo, was given a community order after punching a bus driver twice in the face.
The 30-year-old was back in court yesterday for being drunk and disorderly in public.
He admitted the offence, which happened just four days after his last court appearance.
Linda Fowler, prosecuting, said that at just after 10pm, Joseph was found by police outside the Ivy Green pub in Moldgreen.
She said: “He was extremely drunk, he could hardly walk unaided and his eyes were glazed.”
Ms Fowler told magistrates that the officers took Joseph to his father’s home but he had no key.
This upset him and he started to shout and swear, the Huddersfield bench was told.
The prosecutor added: “He was warned about his behaviour but continued to be abusive. He was threatening to smash the window of his father’s house.”
Magistrates were told that Joseph’s community order includes an alcohol treatment requirement.
The bench was told that he is attending all of the appointments offered to him by the probation service.
Magistrates gave him a conditional discharge for six months.
