Man breached order
A MAN has been jailed for repeatedly breaching a restraining order banning him from contacting his mum.
Liam Eugene Stockton, 24, was banned from contacting her by a court in November 2014.
However, on January 7 he breached the order by making 25 calls to her phone. Then between January 26 and February 15 he went to her home address in Macclesfield four times, which he was prohibited from doing.
Stockton, of no fixed abode, Macclesfield, was eventually arrested and hauled to court on February 22 where he admitted breaching a restraining order five times.
He also admitted breaching a two year conditional discharge imposed by Crewe magistrates in September 2015 for handling stolen goods, and a further offence of breaching a community order by the same court in November 2015 for harassment.
Magistrates jailed Stockton for 24 weeks.
In court documents it said magistrates chose custody because the ‘offences (were) so serious’, there were ‘several breaches of (the) order’ and the ‘domestic violence’ nature of the offending.
