Man Jailed For Assaulting Officer 

Jersey Police have welcomed the ten month prison sentence handed down to a man convicted of assaulting a police officer.

Charles James Gales (34) has been jailed for repeatedly punching a woman police officer in the early hours of New Year's Day.

He admitted committing the offence on Prince's Tower Road in St Saviour.

Acting Deputy Chief Officer James Wileman says he hopes the sentence imposed by Jersey's Magistrate's Court sends a strong message that assaults on police will not be tolerated.
