Anderson Andrew, from Stocks Road, Aldbury, was prosecuted by Dacorum Borough Council for committing an assault and breaching his Anti-Social Behaviour Injunction earlier this year.

Andrew was jailed at Luton County Court, where the council was awarded court costs of £9,922.

Julie Still, Dacorum Borough Council’s group manager for resident services, said after the trial: “Many residents of the village of Aldbury were affected by this anti-social behaviour and the result was achieved due to great support from the community and the police.”

The case used the new Anti-Social Behaviour (ASB) legislation under the ASB, Police and Crime Act 2014 that was introduced in March this year.

This new legistlation replaces Anti-Social Behaviour Orders.
