Curfew and ASBO extended for alleged gang member
A COURT has extended an Anti-Social Behaviour Order which was imposed on a man for allegedly being part of a notorious gang.
Jonathan Webb, now 25, was said to be part of the Honicknowle Defence Regiment when he was given the order in 2009.
Now magistrates have extended the order for a year as the original term comes to an end.
He must not be intoxicated in the street or be in possession of any opened container of alcohol or unprescribed pills or tablets in public.

Webb, of Ringmore Way, West Park, was also handed a six-month curfew.
Presiding magistrate Nadine Fletcher told Webb he was making progress but was still using drugs and referred to other 'incidents'.
Plymouth City Council applied for the order which was opposed by Webb.
Dylan Sadler, for the council, said: "He has never had a job, he is just interested in drugs and criminality. He is not in training. He has no education or employment.
"He does not engage. He is not interested in changing his ways."
Ken Papenfus, for Webb, said the Honicknowle Defence Regiment was not relevant to extending the order.
Police said at the time that the ASBOs handed to the three young men in 2009 had broken up the gang.
Mr Papenfus said Webb was diagnosed with mental health problems, particularly Attention Hyperactivity Disorder, in February.
He added he had breached the existing ASBO only once and his last conviction was for possession of Valium in February.
Webb, giving evidence, said: "I am not interested in anti-social behaviour. I am stuck indoors. I am teetotal."
He said he was on a prescription for heroin substitute methadone and had taken Valium to tackle anxiety.
Webb added he was under the care of a community psychiatric nurse. He said he wanted to be a diver.
