Prolific burglar Jacob O’Dell threatened to rape children and chop off a person’s head with an axe.
This is the first picture of a prolific burglar who threatened to rape children and chop off a person’s head with an axe.
Jacob O’Dell, 21, was sentenced for a raft of crimes on Monday (October 9) including charges of using threatening and abusive words to cause harassment, racially related harassment, three burglaries, thefts from cars and shops, attempted theft, criminal damage of his grandmother’s home and driving offences for driving without insurance and not in accordance with a licence.
O’Dell was sentenced for 14 separate offences and given credit for his guilty pleas for all charges.
He was jailed for a total of 30 months in prison, and also given eight penalty points on his driver’s licence.
The court heard that on one occasion O’Dell hurled abuse at a passing cyclist in St Andrew’s Street.
After a confrontation O’Dell shouted: “I’m going to stab you and chop your head off with an axe.”
Whilst in custody in May 2017 O’Dell urinated all over the floor of his cell before threatening to rape supervising officer, PC Tumber’s children, saying: “You f***ing p*ki c**t I’ll rape your kids.
“EDL mate, go back to your own country.”
During sentencing Judge Cooper called the abuse hurled at PC Tumber “vile”.
Mr Snelling, mitigating for the defence, said O’Dell lashed out because he was frustrated at being detained after he joked about concealing drugs.
Mr Snelling said: “Mr O’Dell said he had five Kinder eggs worth of drugs in his rectum, this was a joke he thought would be funny to tell police.
“It was not true.”
On previous occasions O’Dell also threatened to kill a security guard after he was caught attempting to shoplift.
O’Dell was also sentenced for burglary after he smashed his way into a house and stole priceless family heirlooms leaving his victims “feeling sick”.
He also admitted to two other burglaries from 2012.
On another occasion in April 2017, O’Dell barged into his grandmother’s house and demanded to know where his axe was and asked for money.
Worried, his grandmother left her house before getting a phone call from O’Dell to tell her he’d “kicked all the doors in”.
When she returned two of her doors were broken and had been ripped off their hinges.
Mr Snelling said O’Dell committed his crimes to “fit in” and that he is of “limited thinking skills”.
