Jennifer Stamp of Penryn jailed for breaching Asbo

Comments (2)

Jennifer Stamp from Penryn who breached an antisocial behaviour order (Asbo) four times in a month has been sent to prison.

The 47-year-old was back before Magistrates on Friday after shouting loudly at her West Street home the day before.

She was sentenced to four weeks in prison due to the “seriousness” of the offence and her record.

The previous Friday she had appeared in court charged with her third offence and was told she was being given one last chance to adhere to the conditions of the order.

She pleaded guilty to the offence.

The Asbo was given on August 1 with conditions not to create excessive noise in her house between 9pm and 9am, be drunk in public places in Penryn or Falmouth or intimidate or threaten anyone in Penryn.

It followed months of complaints from neighbours about her playing loud music at night and shouting abuse.

Since May alone, 25 calls from various neighbours were made with complaints including playing loud music, shouting in the street and knocking on people’s doors and shouting at residents.

She is already under a community order with a requirement to get treatment for alcohol dependency for six months.

    The lack of ability of our community to care for someone who is clearly suffering from mental illness is illustrated with this case. It's not only sad and shameful that local health services are not adequately funded to help people like Jennifer but really shameful that that people who share opinions like those of Josdave are so lacking in understanding. Yes she has been a right pain, and her neighbours and community should not be left alone to cope with her anti social behaviour. It's true she has refused help and perhaps a condition of her returning should be that she accepts help. But Prison is not the right place. Condemnation is not appropriate. She needs help and support. We should lobby our local government and health service to care for those in need. A community that does not care for it's people is a bad community.

    About time too but why was she allowed to breach it so many times?
