A serial pest who made repeated 'unnecessary' calls to emergency services has been spared prison.
Wiliam Wosik, of Sandygate Road, Marlow, was sentenced on Monday after pleading guilty to ‘improper use of public communications network’.
The 64-year-old had admitted making a series of unnecessary calls to the emergency services, mainly to police, when he appeared at High Wycombe Magistrates’ Court on March 23.
This even continued while the case was ongoing.
Appearing at the same court this week, he was given a 12-week prison sentence, suspended for a year, and a Criminal Behaviour Order barring him from ‘using any telephone system or means to call out the emergency services unless in times of genuine emergency’.
Investigating officer PC Chris Allman said: “William Wosik has persistently contacted the emergency services when he did not need to.
“We have tried to work with Mr Wosik but he continued to do this and therefore a Criminal Behaviour Order has been put in place to prevent this continuing.”
The candidates standing in the upcoming Thames Valley Police and Crime Commissioner election have outlined their priorities for policing in the region.
A Maidenhead restaurant has said that new temporary outdoor seating provided by the council has helped keep the business afloat and hopes an al fresco dining culture will continue in the town.
