5 News Incident was ‘a blip’


  A 23-YEAR-OLD defendant


faced a charge of failing to attend court on Wednesday (Sept 28) in addition to facing a drunk and disorderly offence. Magistrates told the defendant when he arrived at court that, failing to turn up to court ‘is a very serious offence, but you are getting away with this by the skin of your teeth today’. Michael Sonny Green, of an


unknown address, pleaded guilty to both offences, with the court dealing with the drunk and disorderly charge. Prosecutor Kevin Challinor told


the court that at 4.45am on September 9, officers received a call regarding the defendant, who was at the corner of Terrace Road and Cambrian Street in


Aberystwyth. Mr Challinor continued to say that


when the police arrived, they noticed the defendant was unsteady on his feet as he began shouting at them. Warning him to leave the area, the officers decided to keep an eye on Green for the time being. Mr Challinor further added that


after the incident, the officers were notified that the defendant had jumped into a resident’s enclosed garden and that on the following day, the defendant apologised for his behaviour. Duty Solicitor Janem Jones


addressed the court to say that Green had pleaded guilty at the earliest opportunity and that he was shopping in town in Aberystwyth when he


realised he was meant to be in court that morning. Ms Jones added that Green is


willing to take responsibility for his actions and, with regards to the drunk and disorderly offence, he admitted that he must have been very drunk due to not having any recollection of the incidents. Ms Jones concluded by telling


the court that knowing the defendant for some time, his re-offending has decreased in recent years, calling this incident a ‘blip’ in his life. Taking Green’s explanation on


board, magistrates imposed a six month conditional discharge on the defendant, in addition £105 in court costs
