A Newsome man has been jailed after a judge heard he began committing offences only 11 days after she gave him a chance by suspending prison sentences for three assaults last year.
Leeds Crown Court heard James Robert Dollive was originally sentenced after he admitted assaulting one man when a fight broke out in Huddersfield town centre in the early hours of March 21 leaving his victim unconscious.
He was then on bail when he was asked to leave The Lockwood in Huddersfield on April 30.
Violence erupted as he was being escorted out and he punched the acting landlord and another customer leaving them on the ground where he kicked them.
Imposing 21 months in prison suspended for two years when she sentenced him last October Judge Penelope Belcher heard he had given up drink since being the victim of an assault himself. She warned him any breaches would lead to him being locked up.
She heard from Alisha Kaye prosecuting, that on October 23 Dollive was among other family members at the home of his aunt Carol Doyle.
She went to bed around 8pm feeling unwell and around two hours later she was told Dollive had driven off in her Suzuki Swift without permission.
On November 3 he was arrested for being drunk and disorderly after he was spotted around 11.45am in the middle of Towngate shouting and swearing.
His behaviour continued when he got to the police station with him shouting “you’re trying to stitch me up and send me back to prison.”
Finally on November 26 he was again at the home of his aunt when an argument broke out. She tried to ring the police and he snatched her phone from her.
She went upstairs and used another phone to call police but Dollive had gone before they arrived. However after the officers left he returned and punched his aunt to her face causing bruising.
Mark Brookes representing Dollive said alcohol was again the cause of his offending. “He does recognise alcohol is an issue and his family background is an issue, his intention is to leave those ties behind on his release and to change his environment.”
Dollive, 26 of Edale Avenue, Newsome, Huddersfield admitted taking a vehicle without consent, having no licence or insurance, being drunk and disorderly and common assault.
Judge Belcher imposed the 21 months in full from the previously suspended sentence with 12 weeks consecutive for the recent offences.
