A MAN has received a suspended prison sentence after sexually assaulting two women.

Michael Tuckey, of Widley Court, Fareham, appeared at Southampton Crown Court on Friday, September 5 charged with one count of sexual assault by penetration and one count of sexual assault.

A jury found the 24-year-old guilty of the two offences, which happened at a party between May 17 and May 20 last year.

Judge Peter Henry gave Tuckey a 12-month prison term, suspended for two years, for the first offence and a 
four-month prison term, suspended for two years, for the second offence, to run concurrently.

He was also ordered to pay court costs of £600 and he must pay a victim surcharge of £100.

Judge Henry ordered Tuckey to do 200 hours of unpaid work to be completed within one year.

Tuckey was also placed under curfew, meaning he cannot leave his home address between the hours of 7pm and 6am for six months.
