Man who spat at Norfolk police officer given suspended prison sentence
A man who spat at a police officer’s face and hair after being arrested has been spared jail.
Kurt Bergin, 25, hit the officer in the face and hair when he spat at her at Wymondham Police Investigation Centre (PIC) after being arrested in connection with an allegation of criminal damage.
Bergin, of the travellers site on Swanton Road in Norwich, appeared at Norwich Magistrates Court to be sentenced on Tuesday – the same day a new law with tougher sentences for those who assault emergency service workers came into force, however, the assault committed by Bergin happened in April this year, months before the new laws came into effect, and Bergin was sentenced to 12 weeks in prison, suspended for six months. The suspended sentence will run concurrently to a 24-month suspended sentence order imposed by Norwich Crown Court imposed for an offence of failing to provide a specimen of breath.
