JONATHAN GRIFFIN, 31, of no fixed address, admitted breaching the requirements of his community order by failing to keep in touch with the probation service since November 29 last year.

KEVIN MCDONAGH, 23, of Oaks View Park, Kidlington, was resentenced for an offence of assault by beating.

He was fined £200 for the original offences of assault.

WILLIAM JACKSON, 30, of Linacre College, Oxford, was made subject to a five year sex offender notification requirement. The application, brought by Thames Valley Police, noted that Jackson had been convicted of a relevant offence – four charges of ‘using a carriage service to groom under-16s for sex’ in New South Wales, Australia, in 2017. He must register at St Aldates police station for five years.

HASAN NAWAZ, 28, of Quarrington Grove, Birmingham, admitted driving a Mercedes on the A34 at Peartree interchange, Oxford, on September 12 last year while over the drug driving limit for cocaine and its biproduct Benzoylecgonine.
