A man has been jailed for breaching a domestic violence court order aimed at protecting others.
Adrian Adnett, aged 31 of Deer Park Road, Stannington, was jailed for breaching the order three times since mid-February.
The orders are issued by courts to protect victims of domestic abuse.
Perpetrators have a set of conditions to adhere to and the aim is to give victims some breathing space to consider their options.
Adnett received a 14-day jail term for his breaches.
PC Freddie Le-Billon Payne said: “We are absolutely committed to protecting victims of domestic abuse and will do all we can to safeguard vulnerable members of our communities.
“This sentence should serve as a warning that breaches of DVPOs are taken seriously and offenders can and will go to prison if they repeatedly put someone at risk.
“Even if a victim of domestic abuse is afraid to give evidence or unwilling to go to court, which unfortunately can happen as a result of their abuse, I hope this case highlights that South Yorkshire Police will work with the courts to take positive action to protect victims.”
