Sutton resident receives a 3-year Criminal Behaviour Order

A Sutton resident has received a three-year Criminal Behaviour Order (CBO) following a conviction for breaching his Community Protection Notice.

Robert Malliburn, of Outram Street, is prohibited from entering the Co-op store and car park on Fackley Road, Stanton Hill, until 29th October 2024. The CBO also prohibits Malliburn engaging in, inciting, or encouraging the use of aggressive, abusive or threatening words or behaviour directed towards anyone, and approaching any person to beg or ask for money in the District.

Ashfield District Council's Community Safety Team secured the Criminal Behaviour Order from Mansfield Magistrates Court on 29th October 2021 after he breached his Community Protection Notice initially on 3rd December 2020 and again on 3rd September 2021. Malliburn also received three Fixed Penalty Notices between January and June 2021, as well as multiple Direction to Move Notices, which were all ignored.  

Despite the Council engaging Malliburn with Housing, financial help and support via Social Care, he continued to cause anti-social behaviour across the District which left the Community Safety Team with no choice but to take the case to court.

Malliburn received a fine amount of £120 and a victim surcharge of £34 totalling £154.00

Cllr Helen-Ann Smith, Cabinet Member for Community Safety and Crime Reduction, said:

“Robert Malliburn was causing serious distress to residents trying to shop at the Co-op in Stanton Hill; he was harassing and intimidating customers and staff. This is a fantastic result for the residents of Stanton Hill as it means he can no longer loiter around the car park or the shop.
“The Council is committed to making our communities nice places to live, work and visit. We have proven time and time again that we will pursue enforcement action whenever we can to ensure that the behaviours of a few people don’t impact other resident’s lives.”

Should the CBO be breached, Malliburn will be committing a criminal offence for which he can be arrested and if found guilty sent to prison.
