Chef Injured Hand At His Workplace And Was Unable To Complete Unpaid Work At Charity Shop

1 Mins read

A chef who was unable to complete Community Service in a charity shop after injuring his hand at his own workplace has had the court order revoked and replaced with a suspended jail term.

Mateusz Skiba (37), of Bath Street, Portrush, had been dealt with at Coleraine Magistrates Court previously for driving while disqualified and no insurance and had been ordered to do 150 hours of unpaid work.

The defendant, who the court heard is originally from Poland, was back in court on September 17 for breaching the Order.

Defence solicitor Andy Kinney said his client had been working in a charity shop as part of his Community Service but then he was injured in his own job as a chef.
District Judge Peter King said that when the defendant was given the Community Service he had missed prison by a “hair’s breadth”.

He said it was quite clear Skiba could not finish his Community Service because of his injury and the judge revoked the Order and replaced it with a four months prison term, suspended for three years.
