Michael Hurt

Sutton resident given an Anti-Social Behaviour Injunction Order

A Sutton resident has received an Anti-Social Behaviour Injunction Order for ongoing anti-social behaviour.

Michael Hurt, 39 of Willow Crescent, Sutton-In-Ashfield subjected residents and Council Officers to high levels of abuse including threats of violence, aggression and continuing to play loud music from his property.

Prior to taking formal action, the Council’s Community Safety Team had warned Hurt about his behaviour and attempted to engage him with support agencies, however his behaviour continued.

Ashfield District Council appeared before Mansfield County Court on 11th November 2021. The court reviewed the evidence and was satisfied that there was a significant risk posed to others, resulting in a full Injunction Order under Part 1 of Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014 being granted.

Hurt was also sentenced to 3 months imprisonment suspended until 16th June 2022 due to him breaching the interim injunction that was issued in August 2021.

The Injunction prohibits Hurt from entering or remaining in the Ashfield District Council Urban Road offices unless agreed by an employee of the Council; and from committing violence or making threats of violence (either directly or indirectly) including threats to kill, threats to blow up and threats to cause damage.  Additional requirements forbid him from causing a nuisance and annoyance, swearing or using abusive language to any persons residing or visiting Willow Crescent, Sutton-In-Ashfield, Ashfield District Council Offices, and Skegby Medical Centre.

The Order will remain in place until 16th August 2022. Hurt is also required to pay claimant costs totalling £570.50

Any breaches of the order should be reported to Nottinghamshire Police and Ashfield District Council. Any Live breaches of the order should be reported to Nottinghamshire Police on 999 for which the residents can be arrested.

Cllr Helen-Ann Smith, Portfolio Holder for Community Safety and Crime Reduction said:

“Michael Hunt continually thought it was ok to verbally abuse and make threats to Council staff and residents. Having warned him several times about his behaviour, he continued to ignore our warnings and so formal action was taken.
“This should act as warning to those that think this type of anti-social behaviour is acceptable. We will not tolerate behaviour like this and will take action when necessary.
“Should anyone witness Michael Hurt breaching his order I’d ask you to inform the Police on 101.”
