A YORKSHIRE Coast College student from Whitby has been sent to a young offenders institute for four months after a string of serious offences.
Nathan Humble (19), who had been living with Foundation Housing on Belle Vue Terrace, received the sentence at a Scarborough Magistrates Court hearing on 23 January.
He had been found guilty of failing to pay a taxi fare following a journey from Scarborough to Whitby on 20 June last year, for which he was imprisoned for four weeks.
However, he will spend a total of 16 weeks in a young offenders institute as he was also on parole for a number of other offences.
On 28 November last year he had appeared at the magistrates court and received a community order for offences including headbutting another individual.
The most serious of these was an assault which took place on 6 October last year in Whitby.
The failure to comply with the terms of the community order and the latest conviction means he has now been sentenced to 12 weeks in a young offenders institute for this offence.
On 15 October last year at Rose Avenue he damaged a wingmirror to the value of £30 and on 15 June he had failed to surrender to custody at Scarborough Magistrates Court. For each of these he received a four-week sentence, to run concurrent with the 12 week term.
