Here is this week's round-up of cases at Preston’s courts.

Jail for woman who threw items

A woman who hurled objects at police during a stand off has appeared before the courts.

Deborah Christine Hayes, of Gammull Lane, Ribbleton, Preston, was sent to jail for 18 weeks after pleading guilty to a charge of threatening behaviour, intending to cause a person fear of violence.

Preston Magistrates’ Court was told how the 47-year-old defendant threw several missiles at police officers.

She also made verbal threats to the officers as they tried to deal with her.

She was charged under the Public Order Act following the incident in Preston on July 26 this year.

Hayes has also admitted a further charge of failing to surrender to bail afterwards.

The bench ordered her to pay a £115 victim surcharge.

They ruled that her behaviour caused a “serious risk of harm”.

Sex offender failed to reveal address

A convicted sex offender has admitted failing to tell police of his whereabouts.

Kieron Raymond Michael Tilley, 25, of no fixed abode, broke the conditions of a five-year order that was imposed for sexual activity with a 14-year-old girl.

At the time he also received 20 weeks in jail, suspended for 12 months.

Tilley, who is also known as Checker, Echo and Infrared, failed to comply with his notification requirements by notifying police of his address on August 17.

He appeared before Preston Magistrates’ Court where the bench imposed a six month jail term, suspended for 18 months.

He was ordered to pay a £115 surcharge and £85 costs.

He has previously breached the order.
