Scunthorpe man broke court order on day it was handed out
A MAN broke his non-molestation order just hours after being handed it, a court heard.
Daniel Hague, 21, of no fixed address, pleaded guilty to the offence and to failing to surrender at North Lincolnshire Magistrates' Court.
The court heard that Hague was given the order at 2.30pm on December 12, which prevented him from calling his ex-partner.
Deborah Gibson, prosecuting, said Hague made calls at 9.30pm the same evening, but only managed to say "hello", before the complainant put the phone down.

Simon Davies, mitigating, said Hague had now moved and his client had offered an early guilty plea. He was given a six-month conditional discharge and ordered to pay costs of £85 and a surcharge of £15.
