My previous post back in August said that we had some big news about repeat offending scam artist Norman Fowler which is as the title would suggest: Norman Fowler has been summoned to court for theft of my camera equipment.
He was summoned on the 9th September to confirm his identity and court was adjourned until 30th September when he entered a plea at his plea hearing. While I am still unaware of whether he has pleaded innocent or guilty I am very happy that Norman is once again in up in court.
To my knowledge Norman Fowler was last in Chelmsford Crown Court in June 2012 and pleased guilty to six offences during 2010 and 2011, and was in breach of a suspended sentence handed out in 2008 at Hull Crown Court for similar offences. Norman evaded a serious punishment with only community service, however the judge warned that
He faces a lengthy prison sentence if he brings trouble into other people’s lives
Let’s hope that the judge at Norwich Crown Court takes into account the fact that Norman Fowler hasn’t reformed or changed and has been given ample opportunities in his life time, but has continued to “trouble” other peoples lives.
Although I am happy to see Norman Fowler in front of a judge and potentially being handed a “lengthy prison sentence”, this unfortunately will not replace my equipment, or any of the items or money people have lost.
In addition, it goes without saying that Norman Fowler is ultimately responsible for his actions and the theft of my equipment, however I do feel completely let down by the Norfolk Constabulary, who primarily ridiculed me, then took a painfully slow, rude an all around lackadaisical approach to the case. Leaving me feeling they had absolutely no concern for me or my belongings.
The most shocking thing of all is that the Norfolk Constabulary want me to appear at their station for claims that I have harassed Norman Fowler… As if my faith in the justice system could get any less!
