Man jailed for string of offences

Tue, 07 Apr 2015

A Douglas man who is currently remanded in the Isle of Man Prison has been sentenced to 31 weeks in prison for a string of offences.

23-year-old Christopher Seed appeared at Douglas Courthouse last week where he was also Bound Over.

Describing him as a "reactive person" his advocate said Seed was a "vulnerable young man with significant issues".

He was given 16 weeks after resisting arrest and causing police to believe he would commit immediate unlawful violence in August last year.

They had attended his property following a noise complaint - whilst there Seed picked up a sledgehammer.

His advocate said he had no intention of "hitting" police officers with it but was using it as a means to get the officers to leave. 

Seed was also handed 10 weeks custody after pleading guilty to six driving offences from April 2014 and given four weeks for possessing a double barrelled shotgun without a certificate.

An additional week was added for non-payment of fines and the Binding Over Order was issued after Seed reportedly kicked out, catching his sister when she stood on his dog's paw.

Seed has also been committed to the Court of General Gaol Delivery after pleading guilty to affray following an armed  stand-off with police in Douglas in January - he will appear on April 27th.
