A Gwynedd male has been jailed after he sexually assaulted a female paramedic who had come to his aid after he called 999.
Magistrates in Caernarfon heard that Thomas Shackleford had intentionally grabbed the paramedics chest after being called to his home address.
The paramedic rushed to the location after being told that the 23-year-old was having a seizure.
Presiding magistrates said that Shacklefords actions amounted to a “significant breach of trust” after he admitted to one count of sexual assault.
Shackleford was subsequently jailed for 18 weeks.
The unnamed paramedic told police in her statement that the actions of Shackleford had been “quite deliberate” and that he was “in full control of his actions”.
Defending Shackleford, Sion Hughes said that he was under the influence of alcohol and that he was “deeply remorseful” and wanted to apologise to the paramedic.
In jailing Shackleford, magistrate Sian Payne said: “It’s a significant breach of trust of a paramedic with a duty of care to the public who was only trying to help you.”
