A WINCHESTER man has been hit with a fine for breaking a community order. 

Giovanni Scaroni, 30, of Rowlings Road, Harestock, did not attend required meetings with the probation service between December 12 and 21, a court heard. 

The community order had been made by Basingstoke Magistrates' Court on October 24 last year. 

Scaroni admitted the breach at the same court on March 27. 

He must pay a fine of £200 and costs of £65, to be paid in full by May 27.
