A walk on the wild side

A walk on the wild side

It would appear that a man was given an ASBO by magistrates as a 10 year sentence, 7 years ago, for sleeping rough in the town he was born in. Apparently, the ASBO bans him from walking down the High Street. It has so far cost the taxpayers £1.3m trying to enforce the ASBO. Now magistrates are calling for the police and CPS to scrap the ASBO on this man.

Surely, it would have been cheaper to house him?

Story here.
