Serial criminal avoids jail term
A teenager who has been described by police as the "scourge" of Whiteway has narrowly avoided returning to prison.
Christopher Marks, 19, of Haycombe Drive, has clocked up 86 convictions since he started getting into trouble with police at the age of 12.
Last month he was jailed for six weeks after pleading guilty to criminal damage and breaching a suspended prison sentence.
In the latest case he admitted taking a Honda moped on September 4.

He was charged while in prison, after DNA evidence was confirmed by police, and was back at Bath Magistrates' Court at the end of last week. The court heard that Marks had been working well with his probation officer and magistrates said this was the reason why he had been spared prison this time.
Marks was given a 13-week prison sentence suspended for six months, a curfew, an electronic tag and told to pay £100 compensation.
