A MAN received a suspended prison sentence for harassment, while another received a fine for threatening messages.

In the latest round-up of court cases, Adam Boyles was given a suspended prison sentence for harassment and breaching a restraining order.

Between April 8 and April 22, Boyles, of Penarth’s Hickman Road, sent voice notes and posted on social media about a woman he was prohibited from speaking to due to a restraining order.

He pleaded guilty to one charge of harassment and one charge of breaching a restraining order at Cardiff Magistrates Court on April 24.

On June 21, Boyles, 37, was handed a 12-week prison sentence suspended for two years. It was noted he committed the offence on a suspended sentence, while one of the mitigating factors in this sentence being suspended was the realistic chance of rehabilitation.

Boyles was also made to pay costs of £85 and a surcharge of £154.
