A Stamford man has been sentenced to 12 weeks in prison after pleading guilty to assaulting two EMAS staff members.
Jools Samuel Kennedy appeared before Boston Magistrates Court Magistrates Court in December last year where he admitted to the offences and was given the suspended sentence, including the following:
- 12 weeks suspended for 12 months.
- To pay compensation to both crew members.
- 20 Rehabilitation Activity Requirement days.
- To pay a surcharge of £128 to fund Victim Services.
- To pay costs to the Crown Prosecution Service of £85.
Mark Ward, Accredited Security Management Specialist at EMAS, said:
"We have a zero tolerance approach to any level of abuse or assault against our staff. Our staff work hard every day to deliver the best possible care to the public we serve. Actions like this make their job even harder and we will always take action where we can."
George Reid, Lead Security Management Specialist at EMAS, said:
"Following an investigation by the police and utilisation of CCTV from an EMAS vehicle, this individual was able to be prosecuted for his actions, which highlights how vital this footage can be in protecting our staff."
