PRISON: Frost is serving his second jail term since being given a criminal behaviour order.

Richard David Frost was handed six months behind bars by magistrates in Leeds after he was found drinking alcohol on Kirkgate in Wakefield city centre.

He also admitted being drunk and using threatening words or behaviour at the Premier Inn on Castleford’s Pioneer Way.

The 45-year-old has been banned from Wakefield city centre by a criminal behaviour order (CBO) imposed in January of last year.

Frost, previously of Grove Drive in South Kirkby and Doncaster Road in Wakefield, but now of no fixed address, was handed the jail term and also told to pay £128 in costs.

It is the second time he has been jailed for breaching the criminal behaviour order, which are designed to keep nuisance offenders off the streets.

In September last year he received an eight-week stint behind bars for being caught in Wakefield city centre.
