Reading Magistrates' Court: suspended jail sentence for Newbury man who sent malicious messages
A man has received a suspended jail sentence for repeatedly sending malicious messages.
Kevin James Williams appeared at Reading Magistrates' Court on Wednesday, October 20.
The 39-year-old, of St George's Avenue, Newbury, was already subject to a community order when he committed his latest bout of offending.
That order was made for damaging a house window and for sending Caroline Radbourne threatening text messages.
At his latest court appearance Mr Williams admitted breaching that order by sending a grossly offensive, indecent, menacing or obscene message in Newbury between Wednesday, July 28 and Friday, July 30.
He further admitted sending a similar message to Jake Hooper between the same dates.
Magistrates sentenced Mr Williams to 20 weeks imprisonment, suspended for two years.
In addition he was ordered to pay £85 costs plus a statutory victim services surcharge of £128.
