A solicitor for a man who admitted bombarding his ex-partner with texts said some of the messages included “declarations” of how he had and continued to feel about the woman.

Trevor Patrick Begley (44), of Glebe Avenue, Coleraine, appeared at the town’s Magistrates Court on November 19 and admitted a charge of harassment. The court heard the defendant sent more than 30 texts over a period of months.

The woman had not replied to them but when they continued to arrive she felt she was being harassed and pestered, a prosecutor told the court. The defendant admitted he sent the messages because he was “feeling low”.

He said he didn’t realise how many he had sent and claimed it was not his intention to annoy his ex-partner. Defence solicitor Garrett Greene said his client had been in a relationship with the woman for 14 years.

District Judge Peter King imposed a two months jail term, suspended for 18 months, on Begley, who had a record, and warned him to leave the woman alone.
