A WOMAN who did not take her second chance has been sent to prison for eight months.

Danielle Davies, 31, of Ffordd Siarl in Leeswood, was previously given a chance by Judge Niclas Parry, however she appeared before the same judge on Thursday after breaching a suspended sentence.

Mold Crown Court heard how on September 20 Davies appeared before the crown court after pleading guilty to intimidating a witness and was given an eight-month custodial sentence suspended for 12 months.

However, on October 29 she appeared at Mold Magistrates for possession of a bladed article in a public place.

On October 28 police officers were called to reports of a ‘vehicle being driven erratically in Garden City’ around 3am.

The court heard how Davies and a male were in the car and Davies, who appeared to be under the influence of drugs, had the key ‘in her bra’.

After being taken to Llay custody suit, she told the officer, who was about to search her, that she had a knife on her, which was described as a ‘silver hunting style knife’ about four inches in length.

The court heard how Davies has 12 convictions dating back to 2003, one of which related to an offensive weapon, however, she was 14 at the time.

Defending Jemma Gordon said: “You gave her a chance only a few months ago and she hasn’t taken that chance unfortunately.

“Her greatest mitigation is her guilty plea.

“It’s a matter of keeping her head down and doing her time.”

Judge Niclas Parry said having a knife is a public place was a ‘serious matter’ and due to her previous similar conviction, the starting point was six months.

However, he went on to say that because it was ‘so long ago it would be unjust to do that’ so was given a sentence of two months.

He added: “You were lucky last time it was me. You’re unlucky this time it is me. I gave you a chance last time, you’ve not taken it. You have offended very quickly.”

Davies was given maximum credit for her guilty plea which Judge Parry said she ‘had the good sense to do’.

Davies was sentenced to eight months in prison, to run concurrently with the two months.
