Drunk man could not remember stealing coffee from Worcester Tesco

First published in News

A WORCESTER man has told a court he was so drunk he could not remember stealing £23.08 worth of Kenco coffee from Tesco in Foregate Street, Worcester.

Peter Hodgetts, of Field House Gardens, appeared at Worcester Magistrates Court on Monday where he pleaded guilty to the theft, which took place on Saturday, April 26.

The court was told the 36-year-old could not remember stealing the coffee from the rear of the store .

He was handed a conditional discharge as he is already serving a community order for a previous offence.

Hodgetts was ordered to pay £22.08 compensation to Tesco.

He will also pay £85 costs and a £15 victim surcharge.

Worcester seems to have some right bloody scallies and they never seem to get locked up.

Just reading the article (for which comments are disabled) about the man who hospitalised someone for alledgedly 'gossiping'. Isn't it lovely to know you're sharing your city with someone who did that (after a string of other stuff, referred to as a "horrendous criminal record") yet was given a suspended sentence?

It's always strange how these drunks can't recall committing criminal offences yet are quite capable of making the decision to commit them at the time? Selective amnesia is not a defence.
