Last updated at 12:17, Wednesday, 20 August 2014
THE curfew of a Barrow man who misunderstood the punishment handed to him by the courts has been prolonged.
Michael Alan Rourke appeared at Furness Magistrates’ Court yesterday and admitted failing to comply with the requirements of a community order.
The 46-year-old, of Foundry Street, Barrow, missed his curfew between 9pm on July 31 and 6.14am on August 1.
Mr Andrew Gibson, defending, told the court his client had thought his curfew was lifted on Thursdays due to childcare arrangements.
District Judge, Gerald Chalk, extended Rourke’s sentence by 14 days and warned him that any more breaches would see him sent to prison.
