Serial offender told to tackle drug problem
8:00am Friday 6th June 2014 in News
A SERIAL offender who has repeatedly breached an order to stop him contacting his mum has been told he must tackle his drug problem.
Paul Anderson, aged 44, of Museum Street, was ordered to undergo a 12 month drug rehabilitation programme after continually breaching a restraining order.
Warrington Crown Court heard on Friday how Anderson had twice gone to his mum’s house in Orford after being given the order in November 2013.
On one occasion he turned up at his mum’s home and as part of the altercation threw milk at her.
On a second occasion he turned up at her home and continually knocked on the door and went to the back of the property to continue trying to get her attention when she did not answer the door.
The court heard how Anderson had continually breached orders against his mum after the first one was put in place back in 2007.
After the latest breach he was remanded in custody.
John Bernasco, defending, said: “I’m sure there have been a number of occasions where he has been round without a breach because he doesn’t act in a certain way.
“He has been in custody for 20 weeks, he knows any further breach will result in the revoking of a community order.
“It’s down to him, he says he is committed to making a change.”
Sentencing him for two breaches of the restraining order, which Anderson pleaded guilty to, Judge Nicholas Woodward said: “On July 11 2007 a restraining order was made to protect your mother. Since then that order has been repeated and extended on many occasions because you have repeatedly breached the order.
“There is about 20 separate court appeals relating to breaches of that order.
“This is a very troubling situation. The court has a duty to protect your mother.
“Your mother believes your underlying problem is drugs.”
He handed him a supervision order for three years and a 12 month drug rehabilitation order.
