Prosecutor Kristian Cavanagh told the court Sargent’s victim faces severe anxiety whenever he spots a blue Ford Fiesta and feels as though he is constantly being judged as a thug due to his missing teeth.

Mr Cavanagh went on to say police went to Sargent’s home in The Dale, Woodseats, on March 19, 2020, where they found cannabis, thousands of pounds in cash and a pen gun with 45 .22 caliber cartridges.

Dermot Hughes, defending, Sargent is not a “rank criminal” but a man who has “made a number of poor decisions”.

He stated that he had felt the impact of the loss of his mother, but was “desperate to do what he can to put things right”.

Mr Hughes added that Sargent had a job in prison and drew Judge Graham Reeds’s attention to how his client was dressed in a suit and tie over video link from HMP Doncaster.

Sargent admitted one count of grievous bodily harm, possession of a prohibited firearm, possession with intent to supply and converting criminal property.

He was sentenced to five-and-a-half years in prison.
