Jailed in April

14 criminals from the Sunderland area who were put behind bars in April

These are the faces of some of the most serious criminals from the Wearside area who came before the courts last month.

Their crimes range from manslaughter and drug dealing to assault and burglary. It is not a list of all offenders jailed, but of those who have committed offences where our police forces have deemed it worthy to release their custody photographs to the public.
