Spalding man broke non-molestation ban over wife within hours

A Spalding man who broke a non-molestation order within hours of receiving it has been conditionally

discharged by magistrates at Boston after they heard that "things had moved on a long way".

Dale Andrew Chapman (45) of Matmore Gate, who admitted the offence, was said to have

received the written court order banning him from contacting his wife Carrie Anne, on Christmas Eve last year, but within hours and over the next four days, he sent four Facebook Messenger messages to her.

Mitigating, Daven Naghen said it had been an isolated incident on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day and since then there had been no problems.

“He was not present when the order was made,” he told the court.

“These messages have had very little impact on his wife and there has been contact between the two, instigated by her, on domestic matters since then.

“Things have moved on quite a long way since this order was made,” he added.

Chapman was given a 12 month conditional discharge and ordered to pay £105 in costs and charges.
