Pitjantjatjara man Peter Jeffrey Pompey, aged in his mid-20s, was sentenced to two months and seven days jail when he appeared in Alice Springs Magistrates Court yesterday. Magistrate Michael Carey told Pompey: I thinkWoolworths are probably getting sick of you coming into their liquor store and trying to steal things from them. This is the eighth time youve been in there doing that. The court heard the latest attempted theft of a bottle of rum from the bottle shop was on April 29. Pompeywasalso in court for indecent behaviour in a public place and trespassing. Police prosecutor Kevin Winzar told the court Pompey had urinated outside the Kentucky Fried Chicken outlet on Friday. He said Pompey was drunk at the time. Sergeant Winzar said Pompey had been inside KFC looking in bins for food before being told to leave. Car park Sgt Winzar said Pompey had urin ated outside KFC in view of people in the outlets car park and people inside the restaurant, including children. He told Mr Carey Pompey needed specific deterrence. Sgt Winzar said: The defendants actions were found to be disgusting by members of the public. Mr Carey agreed Pompeys actions were absolutely disgusting. Defence lawyer Mary Spiers said Pompey had not done much with his life because of his alcohol problem. She said her client had been looking for food in bins inside KFC and was unable to go to the KFC toilet because he had been asked to leave. The court heard Pompey had also breached a suspended sentence. Pompey pleaded guilty to all three charges. He received two months for stealing and trespassing. He received a sentence of seven days for urinating in public.
