A WOMAN has been spared jail after making a threat that a man’s legs would be broken.

Samantha Webster was told she had a care-free attitude towards orders made by the court system.

The 35-year-old appeared before Warrington Magistrates’ Court to face a charge of breaching a non-molestation order.

Stephanie Fanello, prosecuting the case for the Crown Prosecution Service, told the court that the breach was committed on October 25.

Webster was the subject of a non-molestation order imposed exactly seven days prior when she made a comment about there ‘being someone ready to snap the legs’ of the person who applied for the order ‘in half’.

The defendant admitted the breach and was told by district judge Boswell that she has a ‘flagrant disregard’ for court orders.

The judge also said that the offence was so serious that only a custodial sentence can be justified.

However, they opted to suspend this to allow her to continue to work with the Probation Service.

Webster, of Inspector Avenue in Bruche, was sentenced to 14 weeks in prison suspended for 12 months.

She was also ordered to pay costs to the Crown Prosecution Service of £120 with the non-molestation order to continue.
