Timothy David Smale, 46 of Weston-super-Mare, was sentenced on Thursday, 1 December at Weymouth Magistrates Court having previously pleaded guilty to two offences of possessing unsafe electrical items for supply, and nine offences of possessing counterfeit goods for the purpose of selling them.
For the offences, under the Consumer Protection Act 1987 and the Trade Marks Act 1994, he was given a Community Order to carry out 140 hours unpaid work, made the subject of a twelve-month supervision order, and ordered to pay £125 costs to Dorset County Council, who brought the prosecution.
