He denied the offence at St Albans Magistrates' Court in July 2020 before being found guilty on October 4 this year.

The case was adjourned for a pre-sentence report and he was then sentenced on Monday, November 15.

The 46-year-old was given a three-month community order under electronic monitoring and a curfew requirement.

He was also made to pay a total of £720 in prosecution charges.
