A car thief from Oxford who was given a chance to prove himself by a court judge has been jailed after committing more offences.
Joseph Holden, 26, previously appeared at Oxford Crown Court after pleading guilty to several motoring offences.
Holden was caught last year and was charged with aggravated vehicle theft, driving while disqualified, handling stolen goods and driving with no insurance.
The judge, however, gave Holden a chance and deferred his sentencing.
It was revealed that Holden had missed appointments and not turned up for his final sentencing hearing and that he had committed new offences.
Sentencing, Judge Peter Ross ordered a jail term totalling 32 months.
Holden was also disqualified from driving for four years and must pay a statutory victim surcharge.
