A 30-year-old woman was given a suspended prison sentence last Friday at Craigavon Magistrates Court for breaching a non molestation order.

Charlene Morrison, Jervis Street, Portadown, was also made the subject of a restraining order.

On March 12 this year Morrison was in breach of a non molestation order at Lakelands in Craigavon.

Mr Gabriel Ingram, defending, said Morrison’s father lives in Bournemouth and she was making arrangements to live with him.

Mr Ingram said she had been in a relationship with the injured party and now she was in a new relationship and her new partner would be going with her. He also said that Morrison had spent some time in custody on remand and it had been a sobering experience for her. She had no criminal record.

District Judge, Mrs Bernie Kelly, imposed a sentence of two months in prison, suspended for 18 months, and a restraining order for two years.
