Jane Greenhalgh Statement
Jane Greenhalgh, prosecuting, said he had also made admissions in his police interview stating he was upset when he went to his partner’s home, in Lancashire, and his dinner wasn’t on the table.
She said: ‘His partner made a statement to the police in which she states she had been on the street outside her house looking at a neighbor’s Christmas lights with her two children.
‘While outside she received a call from the defendant in which she states he sounded drunk and was slurring his words – not making any sense.’
Once she knew Bradbury had left, the victim returned home to settle her children down to bed for the night but was later woken by a knocking on the door.
Ms. Greenhalgh continued: ‘She said he then entered the house and went to lie on the settee. There was a conversation about how much he had drunk that day and she asked him to leave.
‘He became agitated and there was some prevarication on this part in regard to leaving and an argument ensued. ‘Bradbury then made a series of threats to her including getting his family to jump on her, he would set fire to the house, he would kill her first and then take her daughter.’
Preston Crown Court heard that the victim found an opportunity to call the police who arrived shortly after.
Defending Bradbury, Mark Stuart said: ‘Because of his conviction for manslaughter he was recalled to prison on the 21st of December of last year, quite probably because allegations were made that he committed further offenses of violence during the license period.
‘The consequence is that the court has no alternative but to pass a custodial sentence. The six months he has already served will not county towards that.
‘He wholly accepts his responsibility as is set out in his letter to the court.
‘These are the points I will layout in his favor and the first is important – while he has numerous convictions for violence it has never been directed to a partner or towards women.
‘The second matter is this – the manslaughter conviction, without seeking to belittle it, was one-punch manslaughter and in fact, the victim was known to the defendant.’
He added that the probation services had produced a positive report about Bradbury following his release for the manslaughter charge.
He added: ‘He has a long-standing difficulty with alcohol but for the vast majority of the time was behaving.’
Passing a sentence of 13 months in prison, Judge Andrew Newell said: ‘You know I have to pass sentence for one count of affray. This case involved your partner who had recently given birth to your child. You were allowed at her house until 9 pm as part of your license because you committed a serious offense in 2015 which led to an extended sentence.
‘When you take a drink – you know full well – you behave in a way that leads you to serve longer and longer in prison. There were signs that things weren’t going well with regards to drinking but regrettably, they didn’t come to a conclusion until this incident took place. I accept that there was no direct violence but there were threats, harassment, and intimidation. The children were there, and the police had to be called.
‘it was a serious offense of violence by a man who has a record of serious violent offending.’
