A conman who stole half-a-million pounds from his victims, a thug who bit his girlfriend and a family locked up for a New Year's Day stabbing.
Here are some of the convicted criminals from Northamptonshire who were before the courts in May.
This is not an exhaustive list but a compilation of some of the cases heard in court.
1. ANDREW FURY
Fury, from Kettering, was found with stolen pipes and drain covers in his van which belonged to Anglian Water. He was sentenced to unpaid work.
2. WAYNE STEELE
Steele brutally assaulted a man in Kettering after a road rage row turned violent. During the incident his girlfriend Hayley Pienaar died and Steele's victim lashed out in self-defence. Steele was jailed for six-and-a-half years for GBH.
3. ANTONY SQUIRES
Squires, from Wellingborough, downloaded sickening child abuse pictures and videos over a nine-year period. He was given a suspended prison sentence and placed on the register for sex offenders.
