A man from Middlesbrough has been jailed for harassment and criminal damage offences he committed in a quiet Bucks town.

Dale Butters, 32, of Netherfields Crescent, has been locked up for four weeks after he admitted to committing multiple offences in Amersham.

The court heard how on December 2, 2021, Butters used threatening and abusive words and behaviour towards a woman in the town.

On the same day, he committed two acts of vandalism, destroying a £50 driveway light belonging to another person and a holly wreath and doorbell belonging to a third victim.

At a hearing at Wycombe Magistrates' Court on July 5, Butters pleaded guilty to two counts of criminal damage and a harassment charge.

Presiding over the hearing, District Judge Arvind Sharma found that Butters had "flagrant disregard" for court orders, people and property.

Considering the sentence, DJ Sharma sent Butters straight to custody due to his "previous record and character."

The offender was jailed for a total of four weeks for the three offences.
