A MAN from Barry received a suspended prison sentence for harassment.

Between March 4 and March 15 Andrew Howells breached a restraining order placed on him by Cardiff Magistrates in May 2023.

Howells emailed his victim, which he was prohibited from doing.

Of the town’s Bassett Street, Howells, 44, pleaded guilty to the charge on March 25.

The reasons for his custodial sentence were for what the court deemed persistent breaches against the defendant.
