|Contempt of Court

Pursuant to paragraph 13 of Practice Direction: Committal for Contempt of Court – Open Court

In relation to B00GL386 on 17TH July 2015 at the County Court at Gloucester & Cheltenham sitting at Gloucester I, District Judge Hebblethwaite sentenced John Henry Matear, to a suspended custodial sentence of 6 weeks imprisonment suspended for 1 year for contempt of court. The basis of that sentence was that the behaviour was serious enough to warrant a short sentence (bearing in mind the Court’s limited sentencing options) but not serious that it could not be suspended.
