Dyo Gibbs, was sentenced to two years community rehabilitation but told if he breached the order he would face jail.
Judge John Holt said the order would address the 24-year-olds drink and drugs problems and added conditions would ensure he took medication for his mental illness.

Gibbs admitted that he violently kicked a police van when he was arrested causing criminal damage. Gibbs had a previous record for dishonesty and violence but nothing of a sexual nature.
Judge Holt said: "You will undergo treatment and take medication as directed by your GP and your treating consultant psychiatrist. You will also inform your probation officer of your treatment and any breach of the order will bring you back before me. In that case I may have no alternative but to send you to prison."
