A Milford Haven teenager has denied assaulting his mother and taking money from her back account using her card.

Jay Darryl Alan Badham, of Hawthorn Path, pleaded not guilty to assault by beating and fraud by false representation when he appeared before Haverfordwest magistrates on Wednesday, December 12.

The offences are alleged to have taken place in Milford Haven on October 30.

Magistrates accepted jurisdiction to hear the case and listed a trial date for January 9.

Badham, 19, was released on bail with the conditions to reside at the address given to the court and not to contact his mother.
