CoventryLive is naming and shaming criminals from the city and surrounding areas locked up in August.
We’ve managed to gather as many mugshots as possible of criminals from Coventry, Solihull and Warwickshire who were jailed for a range of offences over the past month.
Their crimes vary, and include:
Ormiston was jailed this month after raiding three stores in Nuneaton.
The 30-year-old from Long Street, Atherstone, admitted entering B&M in Nuneaton as a trespasser and stealing perfume and a bag for life.
He also pleaded guilty to stealing two Easter eggs worth £22 from the Co-op.
Ormiston also admiited stealing washing products worth a total of £103 and a crate of energy drinks from Haunchwood service station and using threatening, abusive or insulting behaviour which was racially aggravated.
He appeared at Coventry Magistrates’ Court and was sent to prison for 18 weeks due to a ‘record of previous offending’.
Ormiston was also fined £100 and ordered to pay £370 compensation and a £122 victim surcharge.
A former teaching assistant in Coventry was found to have plied a pupil with affection, drink and drugs -before having sex with him in a Nuneaton hotel.
Kellie Smith of Nuneaton was jailed for two years and eight months at Warwick Crown Court.
The court heard that Smith, 28, “groomed and took advantage” of the 15-year-old victim.
The Nuneaton resident was brought to justice by the Nuneaton Serious and Complex Crime Team.
Warwick Crown Court heard that Smith “bought (her victim) sweets” before having sex with him twice in a Nuneaton hotel room in March last year.
The 28-year-old from Nuneaton, who had been a teaching assistant since March 2016, had also given the boy vodka and cans of Stella Artois lager and smoked cannabis with him in her car.
Smith then took her victim to the hotel, checking in in the early hours of the morning.
The defendant did not turn up for work the following morning, having left the hotel around six hours later.
When she was arrested, Smith tested positive for cocaine and admitted possession of the substance at an earlier court hearing.
Recorder Martin Butterworth told Smith the fact her victim consented “makes no difference at all”.
Coventry man Anthony Chilton stabbed his neighbour on his own doorstep during a row and put him in a coma.
He confronted and stabbed his victim three times in Blythe Road, Hillfields, on March 4 this year.
It left the man in his 30s with a damaged heart and lung, and in a coma for a week.
He fortunately pulled through and has now recovered from his injuries.
A spokesman for West Midlands Police said: “The attack followed a disagreement and 47-year-old Chilton was quickly arrested from his home by officers.
“Chilton denied being the attacker, including at court, but with witness statements we were able to build a strong case of evidence against him.”
Chilton was convicted of wounding with intent and sentenced to 14 years in prison at Warwick Crown Court on Thursday August 13.
A yob who punched a female police officer in the face at Coventry Railway Station was jailed for 28 days.
John Burnham, of Trinity Road, Birmingham was charged with assaulting an emergency worker and appeared at Coventry Magistrates’ Court the following day (August 8).
He admitted the attack, which left the officer with minor injuries.
Magistrates said it was a “deliberate attack on a public servant” by the 21-year-old.
A Warwick man was jailed after breaking into a home and stealing items from inside.
Stefan Watkin stole cash, chocolate and an empty mobile phone box during the burglary at a home in Price Road, Leamington, on May 11.
He was linked to the crime thanks to fingerprints found at the scene and he was arrested a couple of weeks later.
Watkin, 44, of Theatre Street, Warwick, was sentenced at Warwick Crown Court on Thursday (August 6) after pleading guilty to burglary and was jailed for two years and four months.
Detective Constable Matt Collins, from Leamington Proactive CID, said: “Our investigation quickly identified Watkin as the suspect and we were able to put him before the court. We’re pleased with this outcome that ensures he won’t be able offend again for some time.”
Banned driver Simon Milburn was jailed after committing seven driving offences in two weeks.
The 33-year-old was caught driving whilst disqualified and uninsured on three occasions in the space of a fortnight.
He was stopped by police on July 21 and July 30, was interviewed and reported to the courts.
On the third occasion (August 4), he was stopped on Countess Road and was arrested after being found to be over the drink drive limit.
Milburn, of Park Road, Bedworth, pleaded guilty to three counts of driving while disqualified, three counts of driving without insurance and one count of drink driving.
He was sentenced to 18 weeks in prison and has been disqualified from driving for the next four years.
PC Ryan Walker from the North Warwickshire Vehicle Crime team said: “It’s clear Mr Milburn has problems understanding court orders, maybe he can spend the next few months getting to grips with them.
“People are disqualified from driving for a reason and on the vehicle crime team we are committed to enforcing the law, preventing vehicle crime and bringing offenders to justice.”
