A 32-year-old Cinderford man who flouted a court order by sending indecent or offensive messages on Facebook and by other electronic means has been sentenced to a 12-week suspended jail term.

Jason Shane Martin of St White’s Road, Cinderford, pleaded guilty at Cheltenham Magistrates Court on June 13 to sending an electronic message that was grossly offensive or indecent, obscene or menacing, on April 23 this year.

He also admitted posting Facebook messages of a similar offensive nature on May 12.

Martin further admitted that the two offences were committed while he was subject to a conditional discharge imposed on January 6 2021 for sending offensive messages in January or February 2020.

As well as sentencing Martin to a total of 12 weeks jail suspended for a year the magistrates ordered him to pay £213 in costs and surcharges.

They also imposed a three year restraining order banning Martin from making contact with a named woman.
