JANESSA EKERT further investigations were conducted resulting in a warrant being issued.
Baines indicated in October he would plead not guilty before then pleading guilty in April this year.

Defence solicitor Natalie Keys said her client, a father of two, had not committed any offences since 2002 and was in receipt of a carer’s pension as he was the primary carer for two people who relied on him.

Baines was placed on a three-month wholly suspended jail term.
