Blacon work order transgressor given 'last chance'


Staff reporter (Chester First)

A MAN who was given a community order after being involved in a high speed police chase has appeared in court for breaching its’ terms.

Aden Parker, 20, of Hatton Road, Blacon, was sentenced to 200 hours unpaid work at Chester Crown Court in September for allowing himself to be carried in a stolen car in March last year.

During the pursuit, the stolen car driven by Anthony Savin, 22, of no fixed abode, drove at 85mph in 30mph and 50mph zones and drove on the wrong side of the road.

Savin drove off at speed after police officers spotted him rolling a cannabis joint.

Parker pleaded with Savin to pull over after they spotted police on Dicksons Drive, Newton, but Savin sped off.

Savin drove along Dicksons Drive, Brook Lane, Plas Newton Lane, the A41, Heath Road and Mill Lane in Upton at speeds exceeding 80mph just after midnight on March 16, before turning onto Liverpool Road and driving on the wrong side of the carriageway.

He narrowly missed a police stinger device which was deployed on the Liverpool Road/A41 junction and went through a red light onto the A41 towards Hoole.

Shortly afterwards, the car pulled over by Upton High School and Savin and Parker gave themselves up.

Savin was jailed for six months, banned from driving for 18 months and must take an extended retest. He was also given an extra two weeks in prison for skipping bail and missing his first sentencing hearing in August.

Yesterday Parker was given an extra 50 hours of unpaid work and ordered to pay court costs totailling £210 after he missed four appointments for unpaid work.

Chester Crown Court heard Parker already had an extra 40 hours added onto his unpaid work hours by magistrates in December after missing two appointments and he’d missed two more since.

Defending, Leanne Jones, said Parker had 114 hours remaining to undertake but had missed slots due to his previous job’s working hours but he had recently got a new job which did not include working on weekends.

Miss Jones said Parker was able to complete the work and also read out a glowing tribute from his new boss at Cheshire Renovations.

Judge, Recorder Mukhtar Hussain QC, said this was his last chance to complete the work.

He said: “I make it absolutely clear to you this is your last chance. If you do not perform the unpaid work, you will be brought back to this court very quickly and there will be no alternative but to resentence you and that may mean you going down.”
