PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Katie Price has avoided jail after admitting breaching a restraining order by sending abusive messages to her ex-husband Kieran Hayler about his fiancée Michelle Penticost. The former glamour model, 44, was handed an 18-month community order at Lewes Crown Court on Friday (June 24) which orders her to carry out 170 hours of unpaid work. Price had been banned from contacting Ms Penticost directly or indirectly under the terms of a restraining order imposed in June 2019. She pleaded guilty in March and was warned that she faced going to jail.

The words you used were highly offensive and inflammatory so the breach cannot be considered minor." He then concluded: "In my judgement, balancing the aggravating and mitigating factors, the appropriate sentence is a medium-level community order." Price showed no emotion as the verdict was announced but gave a brief smile as she left the dock. She had earlier been pictured arriving at court wearing an all-green outfit clutching the arm of her fiance Carl Woods. She was reportedly heard wearing as she made her way past reporters, one of whom asked her about the chance she could go to prison. Nicholas Hamblin, representing Katie Price, said his client had pleaded guilty to the breach but she had been under a "misunderstanding" that the restraining order "worked both ways". He said there was an element of "provocation" and she had been "over-reacting as she felt she was being criticised".

. He said she suffered from a “depressive disorder and anxiety”, and added: “Miss Price is learning to cope with her emotional problems and to not react in the way she has in this case.” He continued: "She has two different personalities, the public one and the vulnerable one of being in the public eye and every day in the public eye no matter what she does. It’s perhaps a case of building someone up only to knock them down." He added that "there was a lot of good to be said" for Price and she was considered in a probation report to be at “low risk of reoffending". In a victim impact statement read to the court, Michelle Penticost said the impact of the restraining order breach by Katie Price had a "devastating effect" on her mental wellbeing. She said: "The impact of what Katie has done is very upsetting, I feel threatened and intimidated. "I feel demoralised and not wanting to go out. The language used made me feel scared. I felt it was an attack on me. The consequences are I feel she will attack me. I felt by having a restraining order it would make me feel safe but by someone breaching it it has made me feel very vulnerable."
