A Sutton woman who breached an anti-social behaviour injunction just two days after it came into force has been jailed.

Kathryn Keeton, formerly of Nesbitt Street, was given the injunction on Wednesday 19th March after blighting the lives of her neighbours by constantly playing loud music at her flat in the street.

Housing organisation Framework, working in partnership with the Ashfield North Safer Neighbourhood Team, successfully applied for the injunction, which excluded Keeton from the address and banned her from Nesbitt Street entirely for 12 months.

But less than two days after it was imposed, after refusing alternative accommodation, the 38-year-old was found to be staying at her former home in Nesbitt Street.

She was arrested on Friday 21st March.

Keeton appeared at Nottingham County Court last Friday where she was sentenced to six weeks in prison for contempt of court for the breach.

PCSO Matthew Allen said: “The anti-social behaviour injunction is an excellent example of a housing provider acting proactively, in partnership with Nottinghamshire Police, to address the unacceptable behaviour of an individual whose actions were adversely affecting the quality of life of those around her.”
