A CAREER thief who admitted to stealing almost £2,000 from 10 different people has his sentencing delayed for a second time.

Kevin Nanton, 56, of Saunders Road, Oxford, was due to be sentenced at Oxford Crown Court on Tuesday (June 5) for 10 counts of thefts and one count of fraud by false representation.

The offences were ‘primarily thefts from pickpocketing’.

However, the case was adjourned as Nanton is being faced with 12 further offences, including eight thefts and frauds.

Due to a delay in these further cases being heard in the lower court and being sent to Oxford Crown Court, it was advised Nanton was sentenced once he had pled to the other offences.

He is next due in court on July 4.
