A man is back behind bars for breaching rules

The 26-year-old was recalled to prison by the Ministry of Justice for failing to comply with the rules of his release after he had served half of his sentence behind bars.

He was allowed to serve the other half in the community 'on licence' but failed to adhere to a set of strict conditions.

South Yorkshire Police said he failed to engage with the probation service and is alleged to have committed another offence.

A force spokesman said: "The male showed poor engagement with the probation service and committed an offence whilst on licence.

"He will now see out the rest of his six month sentence in prison and will have plenty of time to reflect on his persistent anti-social behaviour.

"We always encourage individuals to engage with support services, who do a fantastic job In Sheffield.

"For those who choose not to engage and carry on with their unacceptable behaviour, a criminal behaviour order can be sought from the courts, or, as in this case, they will spend the rest of their licence in prison."
