    How can I improve this sentence further?

    Hi All,

    Can you please suggest any improvements in this sentence?

    'Renowned for his intemperate habits, the defendant drinks heavily, be friends with many women, and consistently avoids paying for his services.'

    Thanks,

    MG.

    Thanks,

    MG.
