A man has had the requirements of an earlier suspended sentence canned – as he’s now behind bars for more serious crimes.

Swindon Magistrates’ Court this week heard Perrie Shaw, now 30, was given a suspended sentence in 2018 – although the nature of the offences were not set out in open court.

Probation officer Claire Hyde asked District Judge Joanna Dickens to amend the requirements of the order on the grounds that it had become “unworkable”.

The reason for that was that Shaw, of Whitwell Road, Watford, was jailed for three-and-a-half years in September 2019 for wounding with intent and witness intimidation.

Shaw had pulled his 48-year-old victim out of a car, kicking and punching him to the head at least eight times outside Tesco Express in Freshbrook.

The victim fled into the supermarket followed by Shaw, who continued to assault him in full view of a store CCTV camera.

Two months after the attack, he threatened his victim – ordering the man drop the charges or he would “blow up his van”.

District Judge Dickens rubber stamped the probation request.
