judge's gavel

These are the faces of 22 Sunderland and County Durham criminals who were locked up last month

These are some of the most serious criminals from the Wearside and Durham areas who were jailed in January.

Their crimes range from conspiring to supply class A drugs and grievous bodily harm, to theft and possessing offensive weapons. 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.
