Main article content
A 33-year-old Newport woman has been given a criminal behaviour order (CBO) following her anti-social behaviour in the city.
Christine Kenny was given the three-year order at a hearing at Newport Magistrates’ Court on 12 January. She appeared in court on 15 February for breaching the CBO and was sentenced to six weeks imprisonment.
The order states she must not:
- Contact the Emergency Services on 999 yourself or via any third party unless to report a genuine emergency situation that requires an immediate response.
- Enter High Street, Friars Walk, Commercial Street, Commercial Road, Kings Street, Newport Bus Station and Lower Dock Street unless attending a pre-arranged appointment for which written proof can be provided on request.
- Enter Debenhams, Sainsbury's and Tesco in Newport without first obtaining the permission of a member of staff from that premises.
Newport crime and disorder reduction officer, PC Chris Butt said:
“There have been a number of CBOs granted in the Newport area recently for different individuals.
“We work with our partners to try and engage and support them prior to applying for a CBO, which is brought as a last resort.
“We know the order will be welcomed by those working and living in the city, anyone who sees Kenny breach this order should call 101, quoting reference 2100053342, or you can also direct message us on Facebook.”
