AN ISLE of Wight man convicted last week of making threats to kill two police officers, went on to threaten violence at his mother's home, a crown court judge was told.

Richard Wetherick, 44, admitted causing an affray, by using or threatening violence, in Ryde, on February 15.

For Wetherick, of Vernon Square, Ryde, Jonathan Underhill said his client was currently serving a 12-month community order, imposed by Island magistrates recently for making threats to kill by stabbing two police officers, and that the court should use a recently produced pre-sentencing report when sentencing him on the affray.

"The report is very detailed. It identifies his mental health and alcohol dependency difficulties he had at that time," said Mr Underhill, at the Isle of Wight Crown Court, on Monday (11).

"Mr Wetherick wishes to draw a line under this part of his life."

Tim Moores, prosecuting, said: "The only question is that because the affray occurred at his mother's address, will she want any kind of restraining order put in place and that she is satisfied this was a one-off incident."

Wetherick was bailed to reappear for sentencing at the same venue tomorrow (Thursday).
