Coun­cil­lor slammed by court over breach of com­mu­nity or­ders

Macclesfield Express - - BUILDERS ATTACKED AS THEY STEPPED IN TO STOP ASSAU -

A TOWN coun­cil­lor has been slammed by mag­is­trates for her ‘at­ti­tude’ to­wards court or­ders.

Tracey Lorde, 45, who sits on Poyn­ton Town Coun­cil, is ac­cused of breach­ing two com­mu­nity or­ders.

In Septem­ber last year she ad­mit­ted drink driv­ing and was sen­tenced to 80 hours un­paid work.

Then in De­cem­ber she was sen­tenced to an ad­di­tional 150 hours for as­sault­ing her son and dam­ag­ing his be­long­ings.

But dur­ing a hear­ing at Mac­cles­field mag­is­trates’ court on Fe­bru­ary 2, the pro­ba­tion ser­vice said the or­ders are ‘un­work­able due to health is­sues and be­hav­iour to staff’.

Of­fi­cers ap­plied to re­voke the or­ders and re-sen­tence Lorde but mag­is­trates re­fused ‘given the fail­ure of the de­fen­dant to at­tend and her gen­eral at­ti­tude to­wards the court or­ders’.

The pro­ba­tion ser­vice is now to is­sue breach pro­ceed­ings, which means Lorde will be sent a court sum­mons.

Lorde, of Lon­don Road South, Poyn­ton, is a mem­ber of Poyn­ton Con­ser­va­tive As­so­ci­a­tion and runs a hair sa­lon on School Lane, Poyn­ton.

In a pre­vi­ous hear­ing the court was told Lorde was seek­ing help for al­co­holism.
