Man jailed for breaching injunction banning him from parts of Netherfield

A Netherfield resident who was already banned from parts of the area has been sentenced to 16 weeks in prison for breach of an injunction.

Dylan Broadley, who had previously been banned from parts of Netherfield in relation to intimidation and anti-social behaviour, was witnessed by police in the prohibited areas on two occasions which led to Gedling Borough Council bringing proceedings against him.

In September 2017 Broadley was witnessed riding a motorbike without a helmet in the prohibited area, which he originally denied. Then, in April 2018, Broadley was arrested as a passenger in a car within the prohibited area. When searched by police he was found to be in possession of an offensive weapon.

Broadley was sentenced by His Honour Judge Godsmark QC to eight weeks custody on each breach to run consecutively.

Councillor David Ellis, Portfolio Holder for Public Protection, said: "This case shows that we take anti-social behaviour seriously; we will take action and if these injunctions are breached people are at risk of prison. We will work hard to protect our communities, and make sure they are peaceful areas to live in."

Sergeant Sarah Merrall, Neighbourhood Policing Sergeant for Gedling South, said "The Neighbourhood Policing Team has worked closely in partnership with the council to initially secure the civil injunction, under anti-social behaviour legislation, and to evidence the later breaches of the injunction.

"I hope this outcome shows the public how seriously we take these injunctions and how those who ignore them will be held to account.

"We'd encourage people to report issues of anti-social behaviour to us by calling 101 or they can call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111."

101 is the number to call when you need to contact Nottinghamshire Police and it’s less urgent than a 999 call. Calls cost 15p, no matter how long the call lasts.
