A MALPAS man has been sent to prison after he failed to comply with a supervision order.

Matthew David Hayes was due to attend Chester Probation Office for a planned appointment on August 8, but he failed to turn up.

He also failed to make contact to inform probation of his whereabouts.

The appointment was part of a post-custodial supervision requirement.


Last week, Chester Magistrates' Court was told that at the time of the offence, the 38-year-old was of no fixed abode and his whereabouts were unknown.

Hayes, of Dobson Square in Malpas, admitted the breach at a hearing held on August 17.

Magistrates agreed to send Hayes back to prison for 14 days for breaching the requirement and for being a persistent breacher of court orders.
