A woman who used lip gloss to write the word ‘Lesbo’ on a house’s windows in a dispute which allegedly concerned a loan of £2,500, has been back in court for a related incident.
Louise McNeill (31), originally of Marconi Park in Ballycastle but now living in Portrush, appeared at Coleraine Magistrates Court on September 17 and admitted breaching a Restraining Order during an incident on June 30 this year.
The defendant had been before the court in recent weeks in connection with an incident at an address in Ballycastle on July 22 this year when she damaged a window, a security light, plant pots and mail.
A court previously heard the word ‘Lesbo’ and other phrases were written by McNeill on the windows.
At court on September 3 McNeill was given a two months jail sentence, suspended for 18 months, for the July 22 incident.
Relating to June 30, a prosecutor told the September 17 court that at 3am on June 30 police were called to an address in Ballycastle after it was alleged McNeill was banging on the front door in breach of a Restraining Order.
Before she left the defendant had tipped over flowerpots and the woman in the house was in a “state of distress”.
Defence barrister Francis Rafferty claimed “the genesis of the offending was a money debt owed to her” but McNeill had now decided to “write the money off”.
The lawyer said his client realises she had “lost the run of herself” and is now living in Portrush.
District Judge Peter King said the case had been a “saga” and he said that thankfully for the defendant the court was dealing with an incident which happened before the July 22 matter which had already been dealt with.
He again gave the defendant a two months jail term, suspended for 18 months, and told McNeill: “I’m delighted you have moved”.
