Milford Haven sex offender escapes custodial sentence ‘by the skin of his teeth’ says Crown Court Judge

Daniel Tyler admitted both fresh caharges

Within days of being granted a suspended prison sentence for attempting to sexually communicate with a child, Daniel Tylor once again flouted the law, this time by threatening his neighbour and damaging the windscreen of his neighbour’s car.

This morning Tylor was told, in no uncertain terms, that he’s rapidly running out of luck.

“If you step out of line again, no matter how trivial that offence might be, you’ll be facing many months in the environment from which you’ve just come,” stressed Justice Paul Thomas, after Tyler was brought in to Swansea Crown Court for sentencing.

Tyler had been held in Swansea Prison since his last appearance before Justice Thomas on Monday.

“This was his first experience in custody and he hasn’t found it, in any way, shape or form, a pleasant experience,” said his barrister Dean Pulling, KC.

“It’s been a very frightening experience for him and will stay with him for a very long time.  In fact, he’s unlikely to ever forget it.”

On January 24, 2023, Tyler, 33 was committed to 12 months in custody, suspended for two years after pleading guilty to four counts of attempting to make sexual communications with a child. 

 But 12 days later, on February 4, he caused criminal damage to his neighbour’s car and also used threatening and abusive behaviour towards him.  Tyler, of Havens Park, Milford Haven pleaded guilty to both charges.

“You’ve spent several days in custody and you’ve found it unpleasant,” continued Justice Paul Thomas.

  “And that was my intention.  You’ve avoided prison by the skin of your teeth and you will not be getting any further chances.  If you don’t comply, that’s where you’ll be going.  But not for two or three nights, but for an extended period.”

Daniel Tyler was sentenced to 150 hours of unpaid work and a conditional discharge on both charges.  He must also pay £70 compensation to Mr Andrew Williams for the damage that was caused to the windscreen of his car.

Barrister Dean Pulling KC confirmed that Tyler will now be moving to Cardiff, to be nearer to his family.
