The Criminal Behaviour Order was made after he asked female members of the public for cash


A man has been banned from Huddersfield town centre for two years after begging members of the public for cash.
William Riley was handed the Criminal Behaviour Order by Kirklees magistrates today (July 19).
They decided that the order was necessary to protect the public after the Berry Brow man acted aggressively towards some women who refused to hand over their spare change.
Riley, of Bishop’s Court, pleaded guilty to two charges of begging in a public place.
They prohibit people from placing themselves in a public place, street, highway, court or passage to beg or gather aims.
The offences are brought under the Vagrancy Act 1824 and are so archaic that magistrates do not have proper sentencing guidelines for them.
Andy Wills, prosecuting, said that the owner of a shop in Imperial Arcade complained about the 35-year-old’s begging on June 16.
At 8am he heard Riley swearing, looked outside and saw him sat on the floor.
Mr Wills said: “He recognised him as a regular and he was asking people for money.
“The witness heard him ask an elderly female for some money, she refused and he called her a ‘f****** s***’ and a ‘b***’.”
Magistrates were told that Riley then continued asking for cash, swearing at some other females who ignored his request.
The witness called police and described Riley to them.
He accepted that he would come into the town centre with no money, also begging by BHS and Greggs in order to buy food.
Riley also admitted to begging outside Huddersfield Railway Station and was caught there on June 30.
