A man was too busy running his cafe to keep in touch with his probation officer.
Matthew Wilson, 23, of South King Street, Blackpool, admitted breaching a suspended prison sentence order for 18 hours supervision and 100 hours unpaid work for the community.
He was sentenced to a three day compliance activity requirement and ordered to pay £50 costs by Blackpool magistrates.
Peter Moran, for the probation service, said Wilson had failed to report to his probation officer on October 6 and 20.
Wilson had only completed 15 hours of his 100 hours unpaid work for the community.
Wilson told magistrates: “I now have someone to stand in for me one day a week and I will be able to do the community work.”
