Eight months jail term for man who admitted criminal damage charge relating to urinating inside house

A MAN who breached a Non-Molestation Order by going to a woman's home in Dundonald also admitted a criminal damage charge in relation to urinating inside the property.

Lee Carlisle (34), with an address listed as Cherryhill Road, Dundonald, pleaded guilty to the breach on June 13 this year.

He also admitted causing criminal damage to property; assaulting and resisting a police officer and causing criminal damage to a police vehicle.

A prosecutor told Newtownards Magistrates' Court a woman reported to police the defendant caused damage to her property by "urinating".

Police arrived and said the defendant appeared to be "extremely intoxicated".

He was "aggressive" towards police.

When interviewed, Carlisle said he had "no recollection" of what he had done.

The court heard he had 45 previous convictions.

A defence barrister said the defendant "apologised profusely" for his behaviour and was "deeply ashamed".

District Judge Mark Hamill said in March this year he had sentenced the defendant for harassing the woman.

Regarding the case before the court, the judge said: "It is outrageous behaviour, going to her house and urinating over the house, appalling".

Carlisle was given an eight month prison sentence but had bail fixed for appeal with conditions including having no contact with the complainant.

He is also barred from Dundonald and has to live at an address approved by police.
