A 28-year-old man has been convicted and ordered to serve a further 11 months on top of his original sentence after making physical threats to the victim and their family.

The 28-year-old had encouraged family members to assault the original victim and the child’s family.

His phone calls from within prison were made to two family members after he was sentenced on 2 May 2019, but were being monitored by the prison and were passed on to Nottinghamshire Police.

Bickley was further interviewed in prison before charges were brought regarding the threats, and he pleaded guilty at Nottingham Crown Court to two offences of encouraging those attacks.

DC Chris Taylor said: “The force take these kind of threats extremely seriously, so we are happy with the result. We would like to thank the victim and their family again for their support and we hope this added sentence gives comfort to them.

“The prison authorities and I hope that prosecution sends a message to prisoners who are serving their sentences that they should treat their conviction as end of it, and they should focus their time in prison into being different people to what they were.”
