Joseph Sean Ryan was sentenced after appearing before Caernarfon Crown Court on Monday, January 29.

"Our towns and villages are a safer place with him behind bars.

"I welcome the sentence and hope it will provide the public with reassurance, make our communities safer and send a clear message that prison awaits those who resort to violence."
