A MAN from Rodley, near Westbury, has received suspended prison terms after admitting harassing a woman and assaulting man.

Dean Kirby of Heald Cottage, Rodley, also admitted being in breach of an existing suspended sentence imposed in January 2021 for offences of assault and intimidation, Cheltenham magistrates were told.

The magistrates decided, however, that it would be unjust in all the circumstances to implement the suspended sentence and they imposed new jail terms totalling 18 weeks, suspended for two years, for the latest offences.

Kirby, 45, admitted he had harassed the woman in Westbury while subject to a restraining order between February 1 and December 13 2021.

He also admitted assaulting Bevis Thornall, by beating him on October 22nd in Gloucester.

As well as the new suspended sentence of 12 weeks and six weeks consecutively for the offences, he was placed under a supervision order with rehabilitation activity requirement.  He must participate in up to 25 days of activities as directed by his supervising officer.

He was also fined £50 for breach of the original suspended sentence order and ordered to pay £200 compensation to the assault victim as well as costs and surcharges of £213.
