Wirral man sentenced for breaching Criminal Behaviour Order

A Wirral man has been jailed for breaching his Criminal Behaviour Order (CBO).

Jack Roach, aged 21, of no fixed abode pleaded guilty at Wirral Magistrates’ Court to breaching his CBO after he was arrested in the Woodchurch area, where he is banned, on Saturday, 27 January.

He was remanded into custody for sentencing at court on Monday, 29 January, where he received four weeks for breaching his CBO and a further two weeks for breaching his post-sentence supervision order.

Roach had been issued with a four-year CBO on September 29 2022 with conditions not to enter any part of the Woodchurch estate or to associate with a named individual in public.

Inspector Sharon Robinson said, “CBOs are aimed at tackling serious and persistent anti-social behaviour.

“Like in Roach’s case, breaches lead to imprisonment.

“CBOs are part of our armoury in combatting serious and organised crime and are effective in getting individuals who breach their conditions off the streets.

“We are determined to tackle serious and organised crime in the EVOLVE Wirral area and will use everything within our policing powers to make the Woodchurch, Beechwood and Noctorum areas safer places to live and visit.

“We urge anyone with any information about criminal activities to contact us, or Crimestoppers, anonymously, so together we can make a difference to the lives of those growing up and living in EVOLVE neighbourhoods.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact Merseyside Police directly on @MerPolCC or by calling 101. Alternatively, call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
