Trainee at Haverfordwest High School removed after allegedly sexting teenage pupil

Published

on

A MULTI AGENCY referral has been set up by Pembrokeshire County Council and Haverfordwest High School after allegations emerged that a man receiving training at the school had been inappropriately communicating with a pupil on social media.

It has been clarified that this man was not a teacher or trainee teacher, and has now been removed from the school premises.

Screenshots of the alleged sexually charged conversation, between the male and teenage girls on Snap Chat have been posted online and shared widely in the local area on Facebook.

The authenticity of the messages cannot at this stage be verified.

However in the messages shared online the trainee appears to have written the following: “Up to you, how far you willing to go? Xx” and “Ah, F*** You gonna tease me like that? That’s not fair haha… You could get me into so much trouble! Aha x

The man also asked for nudes: “I want to see that body – a few pics maybe? Xx”

A spokesperson for Pembrokeshire County Council said: “The Council and Haverfordwest High VC School have this morning (Oct 4) been made aware of allegations of inappropriate communication between a person undertaking training at the school and pupils.

“The person is not a teacher or an employee of the school but had been present at the school undertaking training.

“Immediately upon receiving the allegations the person was removed from the school grounds. A multi-agency referral has begun.”

The council declined to explain what the man was training for at the school.

Jail sentence for Milford Haven drug dealer

Published

on

SWANSEA Crown Court has imposed a jail sentence on a Milford Haven man who was observed by police throwing bags containing illegal substances out of a rooftop window.

Officers were asked to carry out a search warrant at a property in Dewsland, Milford Haven in April, 2021 on suspicion that illegal drugs were being stored inside.

A man who they recognised as Chad Forrest was looking out of an upper window as the officers forced access via the front door. Then they observed a foil wrap, three bags, and four objects being hurled out of a roof window. While the other bags landed on the ground outside the building, one bag fell into the roof gutter.

A total of 109.37g of cannabis was discovered in them.

Additional inspections of the house turned in 0.881 grams of cannabis and a cannabis grinder in the front bedroom. They found a diary in the living room with a scribbled date, a name, and a reference to “56g and £380.” A police drug expert later confirmed that this was indeed the wholesale cost of this specific quantity of cannabis.

110.25g of cannabis, with a wholesale worth of roughly £710, was the total amount found during the search.

Chad Forrest, 29, of Nelson Avenue, Milford Haven, entered a guilty plea to the charge of cannabis possession with the intent to distribute it to others.

However, the Crown confirmed that the offence was committed whilst Forrest was employed by a scaffolding business while serving a suspended prison sentence imposed in February 2020 for possessing Class A cocaine with intent to supply. Other convictions include the possession of cannabis in February 2014 and July 2020 while in August 2019 he received four convictions for possessing a Class C drug.

“Possession with intent to supply is a serious offence but what makes this case even worse is the fact that it was committed during the operational period of a suspended sentence,” said Recorder Richard Kember.

“It’s questionable how seriously the defendant will take any community-based sentences as he has a history of non-compliance of previous orders. Neither do I accept his realistic prospect of rehabilitation.”

Forrest was given an 18-month prison term. After completing the first half of his sentence, he will be granted supervised release.

Crown for Pembroke man accused of assault, criminal damage and arson

Published

on

A PEMBROKE man who is alleged to have assaulted a woman and then set fire to her family home over the weekend has been released on bail.

Lloyd Jenkins of Hundleton, Pembroke, appeared at Haverfordwest Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday, October 19, to face three charges.

In the early hours of Sunday, October 16, the police and the fire service were called to a property in Richard John Road, Milford Haven, after receiving reports of a fire.

Police remained on the scene for the majority of the day and later released a statement appealing for information about the fire, which they described as ‘unexplained’.

Appearing in the dock, 33-year-old Jenkins was charged with one count of criminal damage, one count of assault by beating and one count of arson with recklessness as to whether life was endangered.

According to the charge sheet, in the early hours of October 16, it is alleged that the defendant destroyed property belonging to a female victim, who cannot be named for legal reasons, namely a TV, a TV stand, a photo canvas and a kitchen chair.

The court heard that Jenkins is also alleged to have assaulted the victim by beating her.

The charge of arson with recklessness as to whether life was endangered, was laid against the defendant in respect to the victims home, which according to local reports has been left uninhabitable.

Fortunately, no persons were inside the property when the fire started.

At the time of the incident, a Dyfed-Powys Police spokesperson told The Herald: “Police attended a fire which occurred at a property in Richard John Road, Milford Haven in the early hours of Sunday morning, 16th October 2022.

“No-one was in the property at the time and no damage was caused to surrounding properties.

“The fire is currently being treated as unexplained.”

No plea was indicated to the charges and Jenkins will now face trial at crown court.

Magistrates released the defendant on conditional bail.

Jenkins will next appear at Swansea Crown Court on November 16 for a plea and trial preparation hearing.

As part of the bail conditions, Jenkins must not contact directly or indirectly the victim and must live and sleep at the address given to court.
