A MAN who breached his community correction order has been re-sentenced and jailed for four months, to be served in the community.
Shaun Lawrence Doolan, of Rocket Street, appeared before Magistrate Catherine Follent in Bathurst Local Court.
The court heard Doolan breached the order placed on him after being sentenced in June 2019 for driving a vehicle during a period of disqualification.
The court heard Doolan was originally placed on a two-year community correction order, but failed to complete the community service, doing just two hours of the 100 hours sentenced.

The court heard he also responded poorly to supervision, did not take his obligations under the order seriously and "has not engaged in any way, shape or form".
Magistrate Follent said the Section 5 threshold had been crossed, meaning there was no alternative other than a jail sentence to be imposed.
She revoked the community correction order and jailed Doolan, to be served by way of an Intensive Corrections Order (ICO) for four months from January 13, 2020.
The ICO will expire on May 12, 2020.
She told Doolan she was affording him the opportunity to serve the sentence via the ICO, but said in the event that he fails to comply, he will be going to jail.
Ms Follent also placed additional conditions on Doolan, including that he must participate in any program, treatment, intervention or related activity specified in this order by a community corrections officer for the period of the Intensive Corrections Order.
Doolan must also attend the Traffic Offenders Program.
