This story is over

A man who breached a court order by visiting his the home of his ex-girlfriend has been jailed for eight months at Lincoln Crown Court.

Aaron Bee turned up at the home of Ashley Elgie and kicked the door and banged on the windows.

Bee, who was the subject of a non-molestation order not to contact Ms Elgie, went away but two hours later was back at the property in Skellingthorpe and police were called by a neighbour.

Gregor Purcell, prosecuting, said that an officer arrived at the house and Bee pushed past her to get out of the house leaving her with bruising to her left hand and index finger.

Purcell said: “He pushed passed her. It was a deliberate act to evade his detention.”

The prosecutor added: “This is not the first breach of the non-molestation order.”

Bee was arrested the following day.

Bee, 23, of Lamb Gardens, Lincoln, admitted charges of breaching a non-molestation order and assaulting a police officer as a result of the incidents on January 2.

He was jailed for eight months.

Judge Simon Hirst, passing sentence, told Bee: “This is so serious only a custodial sentence will do. You have shown absolutely no regard for court orders.”

Mark Watson, for Bee, said Bee went to the house after Ms Elgie contacted him and asked him for assistance.

Watson said: “Since his remand in custody she has written to him no less than 10 times. Cards, letters and photographs have been sent by her to him showing very clearly that she is wanting contact with him.

“There has been encouragement from her and she initiated the contact.

“He says he had effectively moved on until she contacted him and he remains indifferent to her advances. His intention is not to rekindle the relationship.”
