The 30-year-old from Pool was sentenced to five and a half years in prison after appearing at the Crown Court on June 29.

Jenkin was found guilty of physical harm, property damage, dangerous driving and bodily harm on three counts following a rampage in which he assaulted a number of people and drove his car into his victim’s home.

In addition, when he was released, he was once banned from driving for two years and given an injunction.

Maureen Charlton has been sentenced to 32 months in prison for arson after setting fire to her own home on April 23 this year.

The 57-year-old recently had no permanent residence but was previously in Newbridge, Penzance.

At the July 8 trial, it was found that her dog had to be rescued from the inside as a result of the fire and was subsequently euthanized by a veterinarian.

Eventually, Jamie Reece of Saltash was sentenced to 12 years in prison on a double sentence for willful injury, while James Kromer, now based in Wareham, Dorset, was sentenced to lesser injury charges.
