A SCARBOROUGH man breached a restraining order by texting his ex-partner just days after the order was imposed.
Daniel Moors, 19, of Wain Close, Eastfield, admitted the charge during a hearing at Scarborough Magistrates’ Court.
The court heard how the order had been imposed on January 20 and Moors sent messages just five days later.
Katy Varlow, prosecuting, said: “The messages were of an apologetic nature and were not threatening, but were clearly in breach of the order.”
Franklyn Garvey, prosecuting, said the couple had been in a relationship for two years and that his client was very upset when it ended.
He continued: “He had a strong affection for her when they split up and thereafter.
“He realises the texts were a stupid thing to do so soon after the restraining order was made, but they were sent in an unguarded moment.”
Mr Garvey explained that the messages were asking how she was and asking if she would like to meet up.
One message was just to let everyone in his contacts know his new number.
The case was adjourned for probation reports to March 30.
