Gary Mathewson, 51, of Castle Lane, Aberaeron, was given a new sentence by Aberystwyth Justice Centre on June 15.

He was initially given a community order by the court on November 3 after being convicted of making a 999 call to Dyfed Powys Police which conveyed a threat for the purpose of causing distress or anxiety to the recipient or to any other person to whom you intended that it or its contents or nature should be communicated.

The offence was committed on October 14.

On June 15, the court revoked the initial community order due to Mathewson no longer being eligible to take part in the Thinking Skills programme and was given a new community order to attend meetings with an appointed officer or to participate in activities as set by the officer.
