Gary John Newton – Respondent

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

In relation to GU08D00554 on 10th February 2016 at Guildford Family Court, I, HH Judge Raeside sentence Gary John Newton to an immediate custodial sentence of one month for contempt of court. The basis of that sentence is his persistent failure, over a number of years, to pay maintenance to his former wife, when it was clear (and findings were made in my judgment of 4/12/15) that he had the means to make payment and chose not to do so.
