Wadham burglar sentenced

first_imgA man who broke into a tutor’s room in Wadham in February has been sentenced to four years in prison for burglary. Jason Callaghan was given a sentence of three and a half years for burglary and attempted theft, and six months for assault. Callaghan entered Giula Zanderighi’s room on February 10. Zanderighi, a Physics fellow, found him there at 7pm. When she discovered him he had moved a laptop and disconnected some cables. She escorted Callaghan out of the college at which point he began to run on to South Parks Road, where Zanderighi pursued him, calling for help. He was caught and pinned to the ground by two men, until the police arrived. In the course of the struggle, he assaulted one of the men, having informed them that he had a knife. Callaghan told police that he was “just using the toilet” and that “the door [of Zanderighi’s room] was open.” He claimed that the laptop had been knocked onto the floor after he had banged his head. Callaghan, who later pleaded guilty to the crime, has 29 previous convictions since 1990 for over 80 offences, mostly for theft or criminal damage. He was sentenced to three years in prison for breaking into a student’s bedroom in Lincoln College in October 2004, and 21 months for burglary of another college room in Wadham in November 2006. At the time of the latest offence he had been out of prison for two months. The defence attorney rejected the supposition that Jason Callaghan was a dangerous man. The assault, he claimed, was a futile attempt to ward off his pursuers who had, “forcibly confronted him”. Callaghan had been previously convicted of attempted robbery, but this was quashed. A pre-sentence report did not mention any risk of physical harm. The judge told Callaghan that his catalogue of offences made “depressing reading”. She said, “Until you sort yourself out, there’s really not much hope for you outside in the community.” The crime, she said, was “unpleasant” but “a daytime offence in premises that were unoccupied.” Callaghan’s offences are linked to a long-standing heroin addiction, and various psychological problems. The court gave Joseph Valentine, one of the men who restrained Callaghan, a £250 Community Award for courage shown in pursuing him.last_img read more

Solidarity Travel Plan Unites Brazil, USA, Canada, Italy, CISM, and IOC

first_imgBy Dialogo June 10, 2011 The largest solidarity travel plan ever implemented by the International Military Sports Council (CISM), the “Travel Plan” for the 5th Military World Games, which will take place in July in Rio de Janeiro, includes 295 athletes from 49 benefiting countries. Another 205 individuals from 29 countries will also be able to compete in Brazil thanks to this support. The travel plan unites the efforts of CISM, the International Olympic Committee (IOC), Brazil, and three other countries: the United States, Canada, and Italy. “We are gathering all available means with a view to reaching 110 countries registered for the Games. We are still working to achieve that mark. We help countries in difficulties to increase their delegation, thereby helping high-level athletes not to lose the opportunity to compete,” affirmed Lt. Col. Pedro Gagliardi, a CISM deputy sports director. Brazil has made available two Air Force planes with 140 seats each, which will land in four African cities – Bamako (Mali), Yaoundé (Cameroon), Nairobi (Kenya), and Johannesburg (South Africa) – where passengers from several countries will be gathered. “For the first time in history, a country is supporting a continent on this scale and with this level of involvement,” the lieutenant colonel added, referring to Brazil’s action in Africa. Italy and the United States are also cooperating with seats on their military planes. The Italians have made available forty seats for Eastern and Southwestern European countries, while the Americans will support delegations from North America and the Caribbean. Canada has made available 50,000 Canadian dollars to help in buying plane tickets, while CISM has made available 70,000 euros, and the IOC has made available 30,000 dollars. “Our preliminary data indicate that 30 countries are participating in the 5th Military World Games exclusively due to this action of solidarity. Another 19 are receiving support to transport part of their respective delegations,” Lt. Col. Pedro Gagliardi explained, noting that this information is subject to change. The Solidarity Travel Plan has the goal of reaching the mark of 110 countries that participated in the Rio 2011 Games. The soccer teams from Kenya and Cameroon, for example, will travel to compete in Rio de Janeiro thanks to this support. The same is true of the Romanian aeronautical pentathlon team, already confirmed on the Italian plane. Number of confirmed countries in the Travel Plan (as of May 30th) On the Brazilian planes: 24 countries On the Italian plane: 10 countries CISM and IOC resources: Africa – 2 countries, Asia – 4 countries, Europe – 9 countries Total countries supported by the Travel Plan Confirmed: 49 To be confirmed: 29 Approximate total personnel supported by the Travel Plan Confirmed: 295 To be confirmed: 205 (172 on the U.S. plane)last_img read more
