Darlington man breaches restraining order by calling ex 351 times
A DARLINGTON man breached a restraining order by phoning his ex-partner more than 300 times.
Tony Hussain, 48, appeared before magistrates today (Tuesday) accused of calling the woman 351 times between December 2012 and July 2013 – in breach of a life-long restraining order imposed in 2010.
Hussain, of Copley House, Scargill, pleaded guilty to one count of harassment without violence and one count of harassment and breach of a restraining order on conviction at Darlington Magistrates Court.
Laura Saunders-Jerrom, mitigating, said: “He still loves her and could not get over her at the time.
“He had been through a bereavement and was ringing someone who was at one point extremely close to him.
“He called her 351 times not to say anything, just to listen to her voice, being very sad at the time.”
The case was adjourned until Thursday, September 12. Hussain will remain on unconditional bail until then.
