A WINCHESTER man has been jailed for breaching a community order.

John Sebastian Taylor has been sent to prison for eight weeks by magistrates in Basingstoke.

Taylor, 43, of St Martins Close, Winnall admitted failing to attend office appointments.

The court heard he failed to engage with the probation service.

Magistrates triggered sentences for Taylor's assaults on Dawn Gretton, Rahim Ahmed and Lisa O'Sullivan and the theft of a bottle of Grouse whisky from M&S in Winchester that were covered by the community order.
