Prison warning for man who sent wife Facebook message

A man has been warned he will be going to prison for sending his wife a message over a social network site.

A judge at Carlisle Crown Court told Stephen Herald, 27, that the background reports he called for would principally only help him decide how long the sentence would be.

Herald, of Church Terrace, Maryport, admitted attempting to pervert the course of justice by sending a Facebook message to Barbara Herald, asking her to withdraw a statement she had made to the police.

He committed that offence on January 14, a month after assaulting her and damaging her mobile phone. Herald pleaded guilty to common assault and criminal damage in relation to that incident on December 8.

Herald was remanded in custody and will be sentenced on May 1.
