Netherton man threatened ex's fella just days after drugs case sentence
3:03pm Wednesday 2nd October 2013 in News
A NETHERTON man threatened beat up his former partner's new boyfriend just days after being sentenced on a drugs charge.
Wolverhampton Crown Court was told Jason Young told the man he would "knock all his teeth out" and "cave his head in" when he went to the home of his ex.
Wendy Miller, prosecuting, said 41-year-old Young committed the offence five days after he had been given a suspended prison sentence in the drugs case.
Judge Robin Onions said it was accepted Young had made threats while the use of his arms and his body position made the situation appear to be more serious.
Young, of Cinder Bank, admitted affray and was ordered to carry out 150 hours unpaid work in the community. He was further ordered by the to pay £150 costs towards the costs of the prosecution.
Jas Mann, for Young, said his client now had a new partner in his life and a settled home. He had been working voluntarily as a disc jockey and he was hoping for more work from connections in the business.
The court was told Young, who was the subject of an electronic tag at the time of the offence, had no previous convictions involving violence.
