A Ramsgate man and two people from Margate were among those sentenced by Kent’s magistrates last month.

Jason Pearch, a 29-year-old from Station Approach Road in Ramsgate, pleaded guilty to theft and fraud, after stealing another man’s credit card.

Mr Pearch took the card on August 13, then spent the next three days on an online spending spree.

Magistrates sentenced Pearch to 90 days in prison, suspended for two years, and ordered him to carry out 120 hours of unpaid work with 12 months. He must also pay £85 costs and an £80 victim surcharge.

He was also given a three month curfew by magistrates at Thanet Magistrates Court to remain at home between 6pm and 5am daily. The curfew runs until 14 March 2015.

James Ronald Barnes, from Invicta Road, Margate, pleaded guilty of failing to provide a breath specimen in front of Thanet Magistrates Court after being stopped in September.

Magistrates disqualified Barnes from driving for 48 months and sentenced him to 90 days in prison, suspended for two years, from December 15. He was also ordered to carry out 170 hours of unpaid work within 12 months and to pay £310 costs and an £80 victim surcharge.

Samuel Michael Thomas Drury, of Northdown Park Road in Margate, pleaded guilty to drink driving, after being stopped by police on Canterbury Road in November.

The 25-year-old was given a breath test, which found him to be more than twice the legal limit to drive.

Magistrates at Thanet Magistrates Court disqualified Drury from driving for 20 months and fined him £250 when he appeared on December 15. He must also pay £85 costs and a £25 victim surcharge.
