A WOMAN has been sentenced to a total of 22 weeks in prison for a string of offences – including breaching a conditional discharge for an offence committed in Cardigan.

Sabrina Rachel Jenkins, aged 24, of no fixed abode, appeared before Llanelli Magistrates’ Court where she admitted possessing a meat cleaver in a public place at Glanamman on January 14 and received a sentence of 16 weeks imprisonment.

She also admitted assaulting a man on the same date, for which she was sentenced to three weeks in jail to run concurrently, along with a restraining order not to contact her victim and to pay £50 compensation.

Jenkins was also sentenced to a further week in prison to run consecutively for breaching a court order imposed at Aberystwyth Justice Centre in November for causing criminal damage in Cardigan, where she destroyed windows, carpets and wallpaper at a property.

A further two week prison sentence to run consecutively was imposed when Jenkins pleaded guilty to failing to provide a specimen when suspected of a driving offence at Ammanford on January 1. She was also banned from driving for 12 months.

Jenkins also admitted two cases of shoplifting – stealing hair straighteners from Boots at Haverfordwest on August 18 – and food from Londis at Haverfordwest on July 30.

For the first theft, she was sentenced to a further three weeks imprisonment to run consecutively, with compensation of £79.99. The second offence saw a three week jail term to run concurrently, plus compensation of £23.66.

Jenkins was also ordered to pay a victim surcharge of £122.
