Carlisle man plagued ex-girlfriend with calls and texts

A man from Carlisle has been given a suspended prison sentence after admitting plaguing his ex-girlfriend with phone calls and text messages.

Carl Wesley Campbell, 32, was at the city’s Crown Court to plead guilty to breaching a restraining order banning him from contacting his former partner Jade Walker.

He pleaded guilty to that offence and to an unrelated one of affray outside a city centre bar on July 27.

The court heard that Campbell, of Buchanan Road, Carlisle, had initially found it difficult to accept that his relationship with Ms Walker was over.

“But he knows she is in a new relationship now and he accepts that, so things are calming down,” prosecuting barrister Tim Evans said.

The court also heard Ms Walker was now sufficiently confident in the future that she felt she did not need another restraining order to keep Campbell away from her.

Campbell was given a six-month prison sentence, suspended for two years, put under probation supervision and ordered to stay at home indoors every night for the next 13 weeks under a night-time curfew.

Judge Peter Hughes QC told Campbell the curfew was specifically intended to keep him out of the city centre in the evening over Christmas and the new year.

Before he left court Campbell told the judge: “I apologise for being here today and I hope you won’t see me again.”
