Man breached restraining order on number of occasions including New Year’s Day

A man who was previously given a suspended jail term for harassing a former partner has admitted new offences of breaching a Restraining Order including on New Year’s Day this year.

Luke William Wise (26), a builder of Ashlea Drive, Ballymoney, appeared at Coleraine Magistrates Court on April 1 and admitted four charges of breaching a restraining order which banned him from contacting the woman.

He contacted her twice in January and also on March 6 and 7 this year.

A defence solicitor told the April 1 court there was a relevant record and Wise was in breach of a suspended sentence.
The case was adjourned to the end of April for a pre-sentence report.

Last December the same court heard Wise booked holidays and sent several gifts in a failed bid to rekindle a relationship with the former partner.

A prosecutor told the December 17 Coleraine Magistrates Court a three-year relationship ended previously and although his former partner made it clear it was over, Wise texted her and sent her several gifts.

He booked holidays and visited her address and sent her several letters and cards and at one stage “threatened to” take his own life.

A defence barrister told that court that when the relationship broke down his client acted in ways he normally wouldn’t have.

District Judge Liam McNally told the December court it was “a bad case of harassment” and handed down a four months jail term, suspended for two years.
The defendant was also given a two year Restraining Order which he has now breached.
