Clitheroe woman admits breaking court order by contacting her ex


A Clitheroe woman accepted phoning her ex-partner 10 times in as many minutes in breach of a non-molestation order.

Blackburn magistrates heard 25-year-old Laura Jane Robinson did not accept that in the course of the first call she made threats towards her ex, his new partner and their property.

Robinson, of Holden Street, pleaded guilty to breaching the non-molestation order. The case was adjourned for evidence to be called after District Judge James Clark said the content of the call would have an affect on sentence.

“I am of the view that threats to harm people and property would make a difference to sentence,” he said.

Miss Catherine Allan (prosecuting) said when Robinson’s ex-partner received the first call he told her if she became abusive he would put the phone down.

“She started shouting that she was going to smash his windows and smash his new girlfriend’s face in.

“He put the phone down and didn’t answer the calls that followed,” said Miss Allan.

Mr Ian Huggan (defending) said his client’s denied making any threats.

“They were having a discussion about the children and he put the phone down,” said Mr Huggan. “She called back on a number of occasions but he didn’t answer.”
