A former North Thoresby man has been conditionally discharged following a string of assaults and motoring offences.

David John McGan, 66, formerly of Old Plumtree Lane, but now residing at the Dementia and Specialist Mental Health Service in North Hykeham, pleaded guilty to four assaults in Louth between August 2013 and August 2014 when he appeared at Lincoln Magistrates’ Court last Wednesday (March 18).

McGan has also previously pleaded guilty to stealing a Ford C-Max, driving it without insurance, and not stopping when 
required to by a police constable in Louth on August 23, 2013.

The court, taking into account McGan’s 
personal circumstances, conditionally discharged him for two years.

McGan did not have to pay a victim surcharge due to the “exceptional circumstances” of the case, and was not required to pay compensation or costs as the Deputy District Judge ruled it inappropriate.
