A woman who has been convicted on numerous occassions for being drunk and disorderly in Seaford has been given an Anti Social Behaviour Order (ASBO).

Amy Winter, 33, of no fixed abode, was convicted at Brighton Magistrates' Court on Wednesday (16 December) of assaulting a constable on the 22nd of June together with assaulting a PCSO, common assault and a public order offence (Section 5) on the 1st of September.

She was sentenced to three months' imprisonment, which she had already served on remand, and given the ASBO.

Her conviction for the four offences followed nine others for being drunk and disorderly over the summer of 2012 in Seaford. Miss Winter was abusive to members of the public and was often heard screaming and shouting in the middle of the night.

PC Dave Newman, the Lewes District Anti-Social Behavior Officer, said: "Miss Winter's ASBO is a great result and one we hope that will encourage her to stop offending in this manner.

"The police were called to her former address dozens of times and she has had a huge impact on the community due to her alcohol-fuelled behaviour, not only in Seaford but also at her previous address in Newhaven.

"I hope this reassures the public that we do take anti-social behaviour seriously and will take positive action against offenders such as Miss Winter."

As part of her conditions, Miss Winter is not allowed to drink alcohol in a public place or to be drunk in a public place.
