Fine for man whilst in charge of a child

A man has been sentenced after pleading guilty to being drunk in charge of a child in a public place, shoplifting and criminal damage.

On September 11, Marvyn Moreman, 29, of Short Street, Ludgershall, was found intoxicated and asleep in a garden in Durrington.

At the time, he was laying on the floor with a small baby in a pram next to him, and when police finally managed to wake him, he was arrested.

It was also established that he had just stolen alcohol from the nearby Tesco, which was located in the pram.

Whilst en route to custody, Moreman vomited in the prisoner cage and then exposed himself before intentionally urinating in the van.

Moreman pleaded guilty to the offences when he appeared at Salisbury Magistrates Court on October 20 and was sentenced at the same court on November 17 to rehabilitation activities, a 120 day Alcohol Abstinence Requirement as well as £85 CPS costs and £114 surcharge.
