A SOUTHAMPTON man has been spared an immediate jail term after stealing hundreds of pounds of cosmetics and other goods from two Hampshire stores.

Mark Dainty, 33, pleaded guilty to stealing £354 of cosmetics and electric toothbrushes valued at £59.99 from Lloyds Pharmacy in Totton at Southampton Magistrates’ Court.

Dainty, from Meggeson Avenue, also pleaded guilty to stealing £64.96 of fragrances from TK Maxx in Southampton.

Magistrates sentenced him to a total of 20 weeks’ imprisonment, suspended for 12 months, and ordered him to pay an £80 victim surcharge.

He must also remain under curfew at his home between 6pm and 6am for a year, and be electronically monitored.

Meh. Suspended sentences are a good tool, used properly. The joke is that they're rarely actually exercised.

Agreed. So many times do we see suspended sentences violated, yet not acted upon.

If this is the same Mark Dainty who was sentenced to 12 months in a young offenders institution for an offence committed in September 1998 and reported in the Echo, then prison obviously did not work. It really is time to toughen up and stop offenders from ever wanting to return to a luxury life of many TV stations etc. Turn every cell into a treadmill producing electricity to the grid and sentence them to thousands of watts, should do the trick.
