Disposition: Convicted

Defendant/Suspect: William John Jones

Case Updates: 1 update(s) available

William John Jones of Cwm Farm, Blaenycoed, was convicted on 20/9/05 of causing unnecessary suffering to his cattle and breaking a ban on keeping livestock. In May 2002, Jones was banned from keeping animals for 10 years and given a six-month suspended prison sentence, for allowing eight cows to die.

In May 2003 Jones was found to be keeping cattle again. He served a six-month jail term for breaching the ban and also the suspended sentence. At Carmarthen magistrates they convicted Jones in his absence of breaching the ban again after more dead and dying animals were found at Cwm Farm in April 2005. The case has been adjourned until 10/10/05 for sentencing.
