Katie Price to be sentenced after breaching restraining order

ormer glamour model Katie Price has arrived at Lewes Crown Court, where she is due to be sentenced for breaching a restraining order.

She arrived, on Friday morning, in an all-green outfit clutching the arm of her fiance Carl Woods.

Price was heard to say “suck my d***” as she made her way past reporters, one of whom asked her about the chance she could go to prison.

Price, 44, had appeared at Lewes Crown Court on May 25 where she was accused of harassing Michelle Penticost, the partner of her ex-husband Kieran Hayler, in January this year.

She was banned from contacting Ms Penticost under the terms of a five-year restraining order imposed at Horsham Magistrates court on June 3, 2019.

Price was also fined £415 in 2019 for hurling a foul-mouthed “tirade of abuse” at Ms Penticost in a school playground.

She then broke the terms of her court order by indirectly contacting Ms Penticost in a text to Mr Hayler.

Thought to be triggered by an Instagram post by Ms Penticost, Price’s message read: “Tell your c***ing w****, piece of s**t, girlfriend not to start on me.

“She has a restraining order so shouldn’t try to antagonise me as she is in breach and I’m sure she doesn’t want people knowing that she was having an affair with you behind my back. That gutter s**g.”

During her hearing last month, Judge Stephen Mooney warned Price warned the former glamour model that she risked going to prison for violating the terms of the restraining order.

He said: “Clearly you have accepted responsibility for this offence and that you indirectly tried to communicate Ms Penticost despite her restraining order against you.

“I must warn you Ms Price that you are at risk of going to prison.”

The offence carries a prison sentence of up to five years, Price was warned.

Nicholas Hamblin, defending Price, said she had been “subject to various conditions” at the time of the offence and suggested she had been suffering issues concerning her mental health.

When she broke the restraining order, Price was serving a 16-week suspended prison sentence for a drink drive near to her home in Sussex when she was uninsured and did not have a valid licence.

Price is due back in court again next month when she is accused of speeding.
