Johnston woman sentenced for hurling abuse at next-door neighbour

Acorn Drive, Johnston

A JOHNSTON woman has been prevented from contacting her next-door neighbor after hurling abuse at him on a regular basis. 

The latest incident took place on November 10 when Tanya Evans, 44, accosted her neighbour on Acorn Drive, Johnston. 

“She began shouting at him in the street, saying ‘Get your c*** out,” Crown Prosecutor Sian Vaughan told Haverfordwest magistrates this week. 

“The language was clearly directed at him, and it was disgusting and alarming. She also knew that the victim had a young six-year-old child in his house.” 

Ms Vaughan went on to say that Evans had been made the subject of a 12-month community order in April 2022. 

“Her neighbour had hoped that this would have meant the end of her bad behavior, but it continued throughout the day and on into the night,” she said. “There’s shouting, screaming and doors banging continuously.  

“As a result, this affects all aspects of her neighbour’s life. It’s reasonable to say that everyone should enjoy peace in their own homes.” 

Evans was represented in court by Mr Tom Lloyd who said his client had been attempting to ‘jump through every single hoop’ to get her life back on track. 

“But she accepts that what she did that day crossed the line,” he said. 

After considering the evidence, Evans was served a 12-month restraining order which prevents her from contacting her neighbour, both directly and indirectly. 

She was also fined £120 and ordered to pay £85 costs and a £48 surcharge.
