A Merseyside man has been banned from entering Cumbria.
William Dodd, 26, of Avon Close, Liverpool, was sentenced at Carlisle Crown Court on Friday (December 16th) after pleading guilty to Perverting the Course of Justice.
The sentencing relates to an incident on July 2nd of this year when Dodd provided false details after being arrested and taken to Kendal Police Station.
He was sentenced to a Protection from Harassment Order, valid for 5 years, with the condition that he does not enter Cumbria unless attending court or travelling through the county on the M6.
Detective Sergeant Jamie Eaton said: “This sentence highlights that Cumbria will not tolerate those who fail to comply with our procedures. Perverting the Course of Justice is a serious crime and I am pleased that the outcome is a positive one for our county.”
Dodd was released with no further action to be taken with regards the offence he was initially arrested on suspicion of.
