Man admits eighth Asbo breach
Richard Lloyd
Richard Lloyd was remanded in custody
A nuisance neighbour has admitted breaching an anti social behaviour order (Asbo) banning him from a village in Conwy for the eighth time.

Llandudno magistrates heard that Richard Morris Lloyd, 44, was found breaking the order within days of leaving prison for a previous breach.

He was banned from Dwygyfylchi after terrorising residents there.

Lloyd was remanded in custody to be sentenced in the new year after admitting two fresh breaches.

Lloyd was given an anti-social behaviour order after neighbours successfully applied for a two-year order for him to stay away from the village near Penmaenmawr.

His defence solicitor asked magistrates whether the order was really a deterrent when Lloyd had spent most of the time in prison for breaching it since it was first imposed 18 months ago.

Lloyd, who had been staying in a hotel in Colwyn Bay, was remanded in custody until 10 January after pleading guilty to two more breaches.

Pre-sentence report

He admitted drinking from a bottle of white cider in a shelter on the seafront at Llandudno, when the order forbids him to drink in public places.

He also admitted being at the home of his partner at Dwygyfylchi at 2315 BST, when he is banned from the village..

A prosecuting solicitor said when Lloyd is sentenced there will be an application for an anti-social behaviour order extending for 10 years.

The court heard that at the request of his defence a pre-sentence report would be prepared.

The chairman of the bench told Lloyd that all sentencing options would remain open, including custody and sending him to crown court, when he appears again on 10 January.
