Carlisle man who stalked ex-wife spared prison

A man who stalked his ex-wife has been spared an immediate jail sentence.

Gordon Coates, 66, called, texted and turned up at places where Patricia Coates would be, a court heard.

Magistrates imposed a restraining order on Coates, of Atholl Grove, Morton, Carlisle.

Pam Ward, prosecuting, said the couple had been married for 33 years but his wife “left him because of unreasonable behaviour”.

At Carlisle Magistrates’ Court Coates admitted a charge of stalking, involving fear of violence, between August and December last year.

Magistrates sentenced Coates to 12-weeks imprisonment, suspended for 18 months, with a year of supervision. He must pay £300 compensation and £85 costs. The restraining order was imposed for 18 months
