Naeem Dairywala to be sentended on December 20 at Snaresbrook Crown Court
A violent criminal has admitted forging medical documents to avoid community service.
Naeem Dairywala, 24, of Lemington Gardens in Ilford, pleaded guilty to perverting the course of justice at Redbridge Magistrates Court.
Dairywala was handed a four-month suspended prison sentence and ordered to carry out 100 hours of unpaid work after he was found guilty of two counts of battery in 2012.
At first, Dairywala attended his appointments with the North East Probation Service (NELP), and provided six genuine doctor’s letter between January and June this year, all of which stated he was unfit to work.
In July, suspicions were raised by NELP after Dairywala missed two appointments and he then submitted five forged exemption certificates.
On October 21, Dairywala walked into the probation office and was arrested and charged with perverting the course of justice.
Dairywala was also searched and found to be in possession of crack cocaine, and has subsequently been charged with possession of a Class A drug.
Dairywala is due to be sentenced for both charges at Snaresbrook Crown Court on December 20.
Redbridge Police Superintendent Ellie O'Connor said:
"This is a clear case of a convicted criminal deliberately avoiding his punishment. Victims of crime deserve to know that punishments are enforced.
"This man deliberately tried to deceive the probation service and avoid his work placement given by the courts.
"Any individual who deliberately perverts the court of justice faces prosecution and could be jailed for up to 7 years. I am grateful to colleagues within London Probation for their support in this prosecution."
