A man has been given a three-month prison sentence for a number of offences, including damaging an Ammanford police cell.

Niall Morgan, 22, of no fixed abode, admitted a number of charges at Swansea Magistrates Court on July 2. The offences were committed on June 30.

He was given a 12-week prison sentence for assaulting a police officer in Llanelli.

The court found that the offence was serious due to it involving spitting ‘being particularly disgusting,’ the offence being carried out days after being released from custody and while on licence and previous convictions, as well as that the offence was carried out on an emergency worker.

Morgan had to pay £100 compensation, £154 surcharge and £85 costs.


He was also given a two-week sentence to run concurrently for using threatening, abusive or insulting words or behaviour or disorderly behaviour causing another person harassment, alarm or distress in Llanelli.

Another £252 compensation was ordered to be paid by Morgan alongside a second two-week prison sentence to run concurrently for criminal damage caused to a police vehicle.

Another two-week sentence was given for possession of three grams of cannabis, which was ordered to be destroyed.

On July 1, while at Ammanford Police Station, he damaged the cell he was in and was given another two-week sentence to run concurrently.

In total, Morgan has to pay £591 in compensation, fines and court costs and surcharges and will serve three months in prison.
