Sarah Haslam, prosecuting, said Lewis had been in court before for domestic violence and was given a three-year restraining order not to enter Queen’s Drive, but police found him at his parents’ address after a tip-off. Lewis, who admitted the breach, was sentenced on August 30 to a 12 month community order with 120 hours’ unpaid work. He must pay an £85 victim surcharge and £85 costs.
