    TD Members Come Unstuck After Voting YES in SO's 'Turn Up At Your Door' Thread

    A convicted criminal has moved in with a married couple against their wishes after giving their address in court as his home.

    Shane Sims, 19, has spent the last few days living with Brenda and Robert Cole after he was sentenced to a week's curfew for breaching a supervision order.

    But the couple claim the first they knew about it was when Sims, a friend of their daughter, moved in on Thursday - followed by security contractors who put a box in a bedroom to monitor his movements with an ankle tag.



    Sims' tag keeps him indoors between 7pm and 7am much to the horror of the Coles, who both have learning difficulties.

    Mrs Cole, 47, said: "It's turned our lives upside down.
    "He's taken over the whole place. He sprawls across the sofa and he's always in the bathroom when you need it.
    "It's an absolute disgrace. They've let a criminal come into our home and there is nothing we can do about it.
    "How can he get away with giving false details? Can crooks pick anywhere they like and just move in? Who needs to break into a house when the courts will do it all for you?
    "When the men turned up and installed the tag box, I thought it was some kind of a joke. I told them there had been a mistake but they just said it wasn't their problem."

    Sims appeared before magistrates last Thursday where he admitted breaching a two-year supervision order imposed for assault.




    He gave the Coles' Bristol address as his bail address but the Probation Service did not verify it.

    Sims claims he was told he could stay by the Coles' 16-year-old daughter Tanya after he fell out with his father.

    He allegedly told Mrs Cole: "I'm staying here until the tag's off. There's fuck all you can do about it. The courts have told me to."

    The court said it was looking into the situation but police said they could not act without a court warrant.

    Sims said: "I said 'I'll be gone before Christmas' and I will be. I can't see what the problem is. They keep changing their minds. I don't even want to be here."

    A spokeswoman for South Gloucestershire Council, whose social workers care for Mr and Mrs Cole, said: "We are seeking legal advice and doing all we can to resolve the situation."

    I'd beat that wiseass to a bloody pulp.

    I wonder how much of this story (and photos) was contrived to make it "better"?

    ^^ A no vote is a yes vote. Abstention is no defence, SO, Jeremy Kyle & a tag will be in your living room within the month.

    You - technically - didn't have a vote anyway, as I'm coming to rent one of your bikes.

    That's true, and I didn't say it - a fellow trusted mod from Wales did.

    Does SO's IP resolve to Bristol, by any chance?

    Just hide all his chav clothes and make sure only shalvar kameez are available, then call homeland security and say he mentioned Bin Laden looks sympathetic and that George Bush is a wanker.

    sorry.
    If you've got something to say, then say it. Maybe if you had something to say, you should have said it when I was there last week face-to-face (or face-to-belly). If you've got a fucking problem then lets hear it. Or are you too chicken shit, just hiding behind a bloody computer screen?

    Wanker

    I'll think about it lily, but if I did it, I'd be bringing myself down to its level.
