James Lambert, of Bussel Road in Penwortham, received the sentence at Preston County Court on 13th February, after he entered the exclusion zone which the Injunction banned him from entering.
The injunction, which was awarded to New Progress Housing Association in October 2010, prevents Lambert from entering the majority of the Kingsfold estate in Penwortham or engaging in anti-social behaviour
Lambert has already served a 28 day jail sentence following a similar breach in June 2011.
On sentencing Lambert, His Honour, Circuit Judge Butler said:“I find as fact and accept the evidence of the witnesses in this case and the arresting police officer who says you were causing nuisance and annoyance. I also find that you were in places where you should not have been and sent a raft of text messages that caused distress to others. I have found the breaches proven and sentence to punish for contempt of this court.”
Bernie Keenan, Managing Director at New Progress Housing Association, said: “This case should help reassure local residents that we are working hard with our partners to secure court orders against perpetrators of anti-social behavior; and that we will also seek to enforce any breaches of those orders.”
“We believe that everyone has a right to live peacefully and feel safe in their own home; we work tirelessly not only to tackle anti-social behavior when it does happen but to prevent it from happening in the first place.
James Lambert clearly understood that his Anti-Social Behavior Injunction excluded him from entering certain areas of the Kingsfold estate. He has previously been warned by His Honour Circuit Judge Butler that entering the area would be a serious contempt of the court order and he failed to heed that warning.”
