A MAN from Rhyl has been handed a community order after he twice kept a child away from a responsible person without lawful authority.

Tyler Eiting, 18, of Ernest Street, was sentenced at Llandudno Magistrates’ Court earlier this month.

He had previously admitted two counts of keeping away a child in care without lawful authority, and a charge of cannabis possession, at a hearing at the same court on April 8.

The court heard that, on February 27 at Rhyl railway station, Eiting was found with the child, while also in possession of a quantity of cannabis.

Eiting was again found with the child at an address in Rhyl on March 22.

He was made subject to a tag, which will electronically monitor his whereabouts, for a year, and was ordered to complete 15 days’ rehabilitation activity.

In addition, Eiting will pay £85 in costs to the Crown Prosecution Service, and a £114 surcharge.

The cannabis he was found with, meanwhile, was ordered to be forfeited and destroyed.
