Serial offender Leroy Parry has been sentenced to 22 weeks in prison following his most recent assault on Police Officers that was witnessed by the Chief Constable of South Wales Police
In his most recent act of violence towards Police, Leroy Parry ended up fighting with 5 Police Officers on a street in Swansea, Wales. One of these officers was the Chief Constable of South Wales Police who happened to be joining his troops during a busy shift.
During the altercation, Parry sank his teeth into the arm of one of the Police Officers who was trying to arrest Parry, causing damage to the Police Officers skin.
Once officers were able to restrain Parry (using no more force than was necessary)√ he was placed in cuffs and leg restraints before being taken to an awaiting van.
Once in the van, Parry asked the Police Officers whom he had just assaulted if they could turn off the lights in the van, so that he could “get [his] head down”.
Parry had been scheduled to make an ‘appearance’ at Swansea Magistrates Court via a videolink from the Prison where he was being held on remand on Tuesday 24th April in order to faces charges which included assault on Police and criminal damage.
His Solicitor, Mark Davies, told the Court that his client refused to leave his cell in order to face the Court, citing the fact that he would rather “eat his noodles” than take part in the hearing.
This message was relayed to Davies via Prison Staff based at HMP Swansea.
The presiding Judge, Mr Neale Thomas, stated that he would take Parry’s refusal to appear on the videolink as a not guilty plea and the hearing was postponed until later on that day.
When the afternoon slot came around, Parry once again refused to leave his cell; so the trial went ahead without him.
The prosecution revealed that on the night of Parry’s most recent arrest (6th April ’18), Officers had spotted Parry in the street sitting next to a pub.
Knowing that Parry was wanted by the Police for a recall to prison, they made their way over to Parry in order to make the arrest.
The prosecutor, Luke Lambourne, told the Court that Parry immediately resisted the Polices’ attempts to detain him, “kicking out and spitting” at the Officers.
During the attempt to arrest Parry, five Officers became embroiled in the struggle that ensued, one of whom was the Chief Constable of South Wales Police, Matt Jukes, who had decided to accompany Officers on a shift.
After several minutes, Parry was placed into the back of a Police van. His reply to caution was noted as being “Can you turn the light off so I can get my head down”.
During the trial, one of the arresting Officers, PC Matthew Parry, told the Court that Leroy Parry was “shouting and screaming, and struggling on the floor”.
The Officer recalled how he attempted to try and pin Parry to the ground, whilst the Chief Constable was next to him holding the defendants legs.
It was at this point that Leroy Parry bit the Officer on his lower arm.
Leroy Parry, via his solicitor, told the court that the events as outlined by the prosecution did not happen…
The Judge presiding found Parry guilty in his absence and thus he was subsequently convicted.
The Court heard how Parry had 19 previous convictions for a total of 42 offences, which included six assaults on Police, and one on court custody staff.
The Police Officer who needed to undertake blood tests having been bitten by Parry said that the level of violence displayed by Parry was the worst that he had seen during his 14 years on the Force.
During sentencing, the Judge said that Parry had a “dreadful record for assaulting Police” and sentenced him to 22 weeks in prison for the assault, and 12 weeks for criminal damage (the damage caused to the Officers uniform during the arrest) to run concurrently.
