It’s a day for love, romance, expensive flowers, even more expensive greetings cards and last-minute table reservations.
But not for some.
We’ve had a look back through our archives to find convicts who committed crimes on Valentine’s Day in 2021.
Only two names appeared — which is a reassuring sign — but for the convicted pair last year’s Valentine’s Day will probably be a day to forget.

Here are their names and why they appeared in court.
ANDRZEJ KARCZEWSKI, of The Crescent, Slough, paid a huge bill for his reckless driving on Valentine’s Day last year.
The 35-year-old was caught speeding on Windsor Road, Slough — a 30mph road.
Karczewski’s speed was recorded at a staggering 55mph.
To make matters worse, the Slough man was driving without insurance and without a licence.
Appearing at Wycombe Magistrates’ Court on August 24, 2021, Karczewski was handed huge fines.
He received a £600 fine for driving without insurance, a £200 fine for driving without a licence, and a £600 fine for speeding.
Alongside the £230 he was forced to pay in court costs, Karzewski was ordered to pay £1,630 in total for his Valentine’s Day misadventure.
He was also hit with a six-month driving ban.
FISAL REHMAN, of Pemberton Road, Slough, was also in trouble for driving offences recorded on Valentine’s Day last year.
