“He should go to jail.”
Katie is left alone in Crawley Magistrates’ Court as she was also told she will also have to undergo 100 hours of unpaid community work – she also added another two years to the driving ban.
A suspended prison sentence means that Katie will not spend time in jail as long as she meets certain conditions set by a judge.
Kieran explained how his “goal” is to make their children understand what is right and what is wrong and revealed that he would have told Jett and Bunny if Katie was sent to jail.
She added: “Bad things will happen if you break the law. If she went to jail, I would have explained it to the children.
“I’m very open to them and I would have done it sensitively, but I couldn’t tell them she was on vacation or something.
“They would find out soon enough, and that would have meant prison visits.”
OK! reached out to a Katie Price representative for comment.
However, if Katie breaks the conditions set by the judge during the suspended sentence, she could be sent to jail.
Katie was also ordered to pay £ 213, which included £ 85 in court costs and a £ 128 supplement for the victim.

“The triggers that cause my anxiety and behavior are something I’m trying to understand, deal with, and learn to control as we move forward.

Despite that, magistrates postponed Katie’s sentence to September and asked her to attend the Priory for rehabilitation in the meantime, a decision Ms. Kelly apparently disagreed with.
“The public might be shocked to hear that I can’t send you to jail today,” she told Katie’s court.
“But the law says that when a person has met the terms of his release, then you have a legitimate expectation not to be sent to jail today, even if you deserve to spend Christmas behind bars.”
