|Contempt of Court

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

In relation to the above numbered case on 1st May 2015 whilst sitting as a District Judge of the County Court at Pontypridd I sentenced Andrew Lewis the Respondent in that case to an immediate custodial sentence of 6 months for contempt of court.

The basis of the imposition of that sentence was that Andrew Lewis was found beyond reasonable doubt on 10th December 2014 to have breached an injunction order dated 8 October 2014 prohibiting him from entering a defined area of Pontypridd and from shouting abusive language towards staff of RCT Homes and acting in an aggressive or threatening manner towards RCT Homes staff.
