TEENAGER Christian Porter will go to jail for 28 days if he fails to pay his fines, magistrates warned this week.
Porter owes �650 to the court - but has failed to pay a single penny since the penalties were imposed.
"We have had a letter from a compensatee, asking why they have not received their money, they need the cash to fix their car," a legal advisor told Fenland magistrates sitting at Wisbech.
Porter owes �300 in compensation in regard to an offence of attempted car theft; and owes fines for offences including theft and burglary.

"He has recently been released from jail, that is why he has not been paying," explained solicitor John McKanna. "He is currently paying off a crisis loan."
The court ordered Porter to pay off the debt at �30 a fortnight.
