In March 2016, Jaman was sentenced to 10 years in prison for assaulting and robbing a senior citizen. In April 2018, he was sentenced to an additional 6 months in prison after the police found out he had hidden a mobile phone which he used to converse with prison officer Shauna Cleary via text.  
Kurt Jarman was serving a 10-year sentence for attacking a 77-year-old man with a Stanley knife having forced his way into the pensioner's house in 2015. He was jailed and sent to the HM Parc prison in March 2016. D uring a three-hour attack, the 22-year-old amateur rugby player ransacked his victim's house, eventually marched him to an ATM having demanded £5,000. Jarman was drunk when he forced his way into the house in Machynlleth, Powys, Wales and punched the 77-year-old to the floor. 
Prosecutor Joanna James said analysis revealed Kurt Jarman called Shauna Cleary in August 2017, which was the catalyst for the relationship "gaining momentum".
