A homeless man who stole dummies from babies’ mouths did so to “soothe himself”, a court heard.
Josh Guilder, 23, was jailed for 14 months for taking soothers from five youngsters around Harlow in Essex between February 10 and August 7 this year. He would then sit in a tent and use the soothers himself, the court was told.
An earlier hearing was told Guilder had “never been weaned from dummies” and had been living in a tent. His representatives told the court he would “soothe himself” with the items.
