Trading Standards officers welcome jail term handed to roofer Danny Sherwood

Bournemouth Echo: JAILED: Danny Sherwood JAILED: Danny Sherwood

TRADING standards officers have welcomed the jail term handed down to rogue roofer Danny Sherwood, pictured.

The 30-year-old, from Wimborne Road, was imprisoned for nine months on Friday.

He was convicted of ripping off a vulnerable 73-year-old woman after he carried out unnecessary work on her chimney and charged her more than £2,000.

The offences came to light when the victim approached Borough of Poole trading standards.

Regulatory team manager James Norman said: “We are pleased with this sentence.

“It sends a clear message to those people who seek to defraud members of our community that trading standards will come after you and bring you to justice.”

Council cabinet member Cllr Xena Dion added: “This is a horrible crime against a vulnerable member of our community.

“We are committed to protecting all our residents from unscrupulous rogue traders and this clearly demonstrates that they are not welcome to operate here in Poole.”

Now the public can raise two fingers to him, as he is the one one without his freedom, all because he is a greedy selfish individual. What was his defence lawyer saying about him having stress and was off work. Stress because he was caught. Now he is inside he, hopefully, will be getting some stress !!,!!!!
I bet it makes him think next time he considers cheating someone .
A great pity he doesn't have to pay for his keep whilst inside,
Now there is a thought.

I doubt very much it will make him think even once before robbing another person. Because robbing is what he did, and robbing is what he does, Roofing work is merely the guise he does it under.

I don't doubt either that he will see this as no more than an occupational hazard and the jail term as no more than a badge of honour. A far better sentence would have included a considerable amount of community service ... clearing up pensioners gardens for instance. A night time curfew and a ban on him cold calling for at least 5 years or working as a result of cold calling.With a minimum 5 year jail sentence should there be any breach of these conditions.

Will it stop his thieving way ? I very much doubt, but it will go a long way to putting something back.

Gutless scumbag. Low life like him make me sick preying on the old and weak. Any luck he will come up against some bigger than him inside. Obviously no conscience. His family must be so proud.
Shame trading standards don't do anything about rogue trader Parkstone Heath south gate. Another that preys on the elderly.

The jail sentence coincided with rogue trading week? Wake up to reality everyone, his atrocious behaviour has nothing to do with the weak and vulnerable of today's society. All pre-selected crimes are published to frighten the small independent person about any subject that is suitable for the bigger industries. Now honest roofers are in fear of looking for work for being investigated. Why do you think the fictitious hero 'Superman' worked as a reporter named Clark Kent? Children are spoon fed that all news is to be believed as it hails from a trusted source. Watch and witness when there is a purge on independent food outlets, window cleaners, hairdressers or even charity shops. The headlines are stored for such times. Re-food greasy spoon cafe's will be closed down, window cleaning will be outlawed, hairdressers ostracised and charity shops banned. Replaced by food- We must only eat at McDonalds. Window Cleaning-Only Double Glazing giant companies will be permitted to clean-Hairdressers must hail from one concern only and Charity Shops will be situated in Tesco's. Installing fear of fellow man is a ploy so segregate society. So question what you are told for Pete's sake? When a big consortium is on the move they pay the media to find targets and a week or so later they will come in as the good guys if you think I am paranoid or scaremongering ask yourself why there are no street venders, no male primary school teachers, no travel agents, no butchers, no free parking at hospitals. Greed has only one aim and that is to scare first and control afterwards. You will never read a headline about a corrupt journalist because in our minds we are led to believe they are all messengers of the truth. The powers in the major cities around the world have planned next weeks headlines already from last week. Coincided with "Rogue Trader Week" if you believe that was a coincidence you already have being duped from childhood. SORRY.

Now on my page there seems to be an advert about some company that has been a fair trader for over 30 years! One example 5 years ago I had three different quotes for a new boiler for exactly the same service they varied from £4,000, £3,000 to eventually £1,800. The £4,000 was quoted by a well known supplier of plumbing equipment who had over the years progressed to installing their products. Now that advert I have just seen is of course not intended but just a coincidence? Hilarious:-)
