A Powys resident accused of assaulting a woman in a village near Newtown is facing a further wait to find out how long she will spend time in prison.

Louise Thomas, 24, is now due to be sentenced later this month for assaulting Tilly Lloyd-Jones by occasioning her actual bodily harm (ABH) in Abermule on Tuesday, April 9.

Thomas, of Llanllwchaiarn Road, Newtown, appeared at Caernarfon Crown Court on Thursday, May 2, through a video link from HMP Berwyn.

Wearing a blonde top knot bun, black rimmed glasses, and a grey jumper, she only spoke to confirm her name.


Barrister Brett Williamson, who was acting on behalf of Thomas, told the court it was "inevitable" that the 24-year-old will receive an immediate custodial sentence for ABH against Miss Lloyd-Jones last month.

Mr Williamson's request to adjourn the sentencing hearing for a further fortnight while Thomas' legal aid issues were resolved was granted by the judge.

His Honour Judge Timothy Petts remanded Thomas in custody at the adult male prison near Wrexham to appear in the crown court for sentencing on Friday, May 17.
