A RAYLEIGH gang member who missed a probation meeting to go on a driving lesson has been warned he faces prison if he breaks the rules again.
Harvir Butt, 21, of Down Hall Road was handed a suspended sentence for GBH with intent following an incident that took place on April 24, 2021.
Butt was one of the Rayleigh-based Gutless Gang banned from associating with other known gang members both in their own gang and other groups, until September this year.
His suspended sentence meant he had to undergo monthly reviews to monitor his progress.
He appeared at Basildon Crown Court on Friday June 30 after breaching the court order.
Judge Samantha Leigh set a requirement for Butt to attend all of his probation meetings for the next three months.
She said: “I understand you have been making progress in the past few months, but this is unacceptable.
“My foot is firmly on your throat and if you have a hiccup in the next three months, I will be less lenient and you will be going inside.”
Butt’s next review is on July 27, and a decision will be made on his progress at his review on September 28.
