IN A RECENT court mention at Haverfordwest Magistrates’ Court, Danni Sandow, a resident of Three Meadows in Haverfordwest, faced charges of assault by beating of an emergency worker.
The offence, contrary to Section 39 of the Criminal Justice Act 1988 and Section 1 of the Assaults on Emergency Workers (Offences) Act 2018, took place on the 23rd of April 2023 in Haverfordwest.
Sandow was accused of assaulting PC 823 Gray, a Police Constable, while the officer was carrying out his duties.
During the hearing on the 23rd of May 2023, Sandow indicated a guilty plea to the charge. However, the court remanded Sandow on conditional bail, with the next hearing scheduled for the 20th of June 2023 at Haverfordwest Magistrates’ Court, Courtroom 01.
The hearing is expected to last approximately 30 minutes.
Several bail conditions were imposed on Sandow to ensure compliance and prevent further offences.
These conditions include a curfew from 20:00 to 07:00 daily. Additionally, Sandow is required to reside at their address on Three Meadows in Haverfordwest, as well as cooperate with the probation for the preparation of a psychiatrist report.
The adjournment of the hearing was granted for the purpose of obtaining this report.
The assault on an emergency worker highlights the serious nature of the offence, and the court’s decision to remand Sandow on conditional bail underscores the need to prevent further offending.
Assaults on emergency workers are taken seriously by the legal system to ensure the safety and protection of those who dedicate themselves to serving the community.
The upcoming sentencing hearing will provide an opportunity for the court to consider all relevant factors, including the psychiatrist report, in determining an appropriate sentence for Sandow.
