A WREXHAM man found himself receiving a fine of more than £400 after missing a probation appointment.

Kevin Jones, of Cheshire View in Brymbo, appeared at Mold Crown Court on Thursday.

The 39-year-old admitted having breached his suspended sentence order - imposed in 2020 for an offence of assault occasioning actual bodily harm - by failing to attend an unpaid work appointment.

Karl Scholz, on behalf of the probation service, told the court: "The most pleasing aspect of this is that the order has now expired, so he is no longer subject to the suspended sentence.

"And he's not committed any further offences while it's been in place."

He added the defendant had completed 64 out of 100 unpaid work hours, and had finished both his rehabilitation activity days, as well as a thinking skills programme.

Judge Nicola Saffman handed down a £420 fine for the breach, as well as imposing £120 costs on the defendant.
