Devizes man jailed for breaching a restraining order
2:00pm Thursday 29th August 2013 in News
Devizes man Jason Donachie has been jailed for eight weeks for breaching a restraining order.
Donachie, 38, of Century Close, had denied the charge but changed his plea to guilty when he appeared at Salisbury Magistrates Court on August 15.
The court heard Donachie was found by police officers sat on top of a woman in Estcourt Crescent, Devizes, on June 19. A restraining order had been imposed to stop him contacting her by Salisbury Magistrates’ Court on February 6.
Magistrates sentenced him to eight weeks’ imprisonment because the offence was so serious and he had a “flagrant disregard for court orders”.
Charges of assaulting the woman on June 19 in Devizes and breaching a restraining order on June 5 in Trowbridge were dropped.
