A man responsible for persistent anti-social behaviour in Ollerton town centre has appeared in court after breaching his Criminal Behaviour Order (CBO).

Bowman was sentenced to 18 weeks in prison, six weeks for breach of his CBO and 12 weeks suspended sentence activated from previous sentencing.
Under the terms of the order, Bowman is prohibited from:
- Using threatening, intimidating, insulting, or abusive words or behaviour in any place in which the public has access to in Ollerton or Boughton
- Entering Forest Road, Ollerton, including Tesco store and car park and Asda store and car park
Councillor David Lloyd, Leader of Newark and Sherwood District Council, said: “We continue to work with the police to target those who commit anti-social behaviour in the district and this case in Ollerton serves to demonstrate that we will not tolerate behaviour by individuals that causes alarm and distress.
“A significant amount of work takes place prior to a Criminal Behaviour Order being secured at court to give offenders are given the opportunity to address their issues. For those who decline the support or continue to behave in a way that is unacceptable and in a manner that impacts on others, we will take the necessary action to bring them back to court where the persistent offending is dealt with accordingly.”
Inspector Heather Sutton, District Commander for Newark and Sherwood Police said: “We will not tolerate anti-social behaviour in our areas. Mr Bowman was issued his CBO over a year ago and has continued with his behaviour. 18 weeks is quite a sentence and shows the power that the authorities have to reduce anti-social behaviour.”
