Danny Sherwood arrives at Bournemouth Magistrates’ Court

Danny Sherwood arrives at Bournemouth Magistrates’ Court

First published in News

A ROGUE trader who drove an elderly woman to a cash point to extort more than £1,000 to pay for unnecessary work has had his sentence for a previous offence reviewed.

Danny Sherwood was found guilty of seven counts of fraud at Bournemouth Crown Court on Friday after needlessly removing a chimney at the vulnerable pensioner’s home in Rossmore in September 2012.

On Wednesday, April 16, he appeared at Bournemouth Magistrates’ Court for a review of a community order he was given in December 2012 in relation to a public order offence for threatening behaviour. The magistrates revoked the order and resentenced Sherwood, handing him a 12 month conditional discharge.

As reported in the Daily Echo, Sherwood, of Wimborne Road, Kinson, was found guilty of dishonestly informing an elderly woman that her chimney was unsafe, of charging £2,150 for roofing work worth just £630 and of engaging in an aggressive practice in driving her to the cash point in his van and “assisting her to press the correct buttons”, on Friday, April 11.

The 30-year-old also gave the wrong postal address of Wakely Road.

He failed to provide a guarantee or receipt for the work and payment.

He also omitted to disclose that he was not Gas Safe approved.

Sherwood, whose father and brother, both called Kevin, have been convicted of similar crimes in the past, denied all 11 charges and was found not guilty on four by the jury.

He will be sentenced for his latest offences at Bournemouth Crown Court on May 9.

'Handing him a 12 month conditional discharge' what does that mean? Has he got away with it? Unbelievable if so - or perhaps not looking at many of the sentences handed out in Bournemouth.

The Conditional Discharge means that if commits no further offences during the period of the discharge, he will not be punished further. But if he does commit further offence(s), this offence will be taken into consideration when sentencing him for any further offence.
He has already committed a like offence, does that mean that he has breached this conditional order which was made after he was convicted of the second offence?
What I do find disturbing is that the victim was driven to the cashpoint to draw out £1000. I always thought there was a limit on the amount you could draw out from a machine each day, specifically to stop fraud.

Let's hope it's not Wiggs who is doing the sentencing.

He should be thrown off Pool Quay wearing a pair of concrete overboots. Or perhaps bricked up alive in a concrete bridge stantion on the M25.

Clearly the aesthetics displayed from the neck up are commensurate with Mr Potato Head! Having said I am sure a potato has much more intelligence!

Why are you talking about events happening in Sherwood Forest? Irrelevant to Dorset.
