Katie Price escapes jail sentence

Katie Price, smiled in court on Friday, as she narrowly avoided a prison sentence after pleading guilty to breaching a restraining order. 

Full Story:

The star has been handed an 18-month community order at Lewes Crown Court and ordered to carry out 170 hours of unpaid work after admitting breaching a restraining order by sending abusive messages to her ex-husband Kieran Hayler about his fiancée Michelle Penticost.

When delivering his verdict on Friday, Judge Stephen Mooney told the star how in his judgement the offence was “committed out of anger” and the breach could not be “considered minor”.

“In my judgement, balancing the aggravating and mitigating factors, the appropriate sentence is a medium-level community order,” he added when letting the former glamour model know her fate in the courtroom.

She had been banned from contacting Ms Penticost directly or indirectly under the terms of a restraining order imposed in June 2019.

The message read: ‘Tell your ****ing wh**e, piece of s**t, girlfriend not to start on me.

‘She has a restraining order so shouldn’t try antagonise me as she is in breach and I’m sure she doesn’t want people knowing that she was having an affair with you behind my back. That gutter s**g.’
