A Northampton man has been fined after painting a message outside a house he believed to belong to a sex offender.
Jamie David Owens, of Darwin Walk, attended an address in the East Hunsbury area of Northampton on August 1 2021.
He took a “pot of white paint and a mop” and proceeded to write a message on the road outside the house.
The court was not told what the message said.
However, prosecutor Suky Singh told Northampton Magistrates Court Owens “believe the home belonged to a registered sex offender”.
Northamptonshire Police were called shortly after and Owens was arrested.
