A HEREFORDSHIRE woman has been up before the magistrates after breaking a ban by letting another person stay at her home.

Lisa Gittings entered a guilty plea to one count of failing to comply with a community protection notice when she appeared before magistrates in Kidderminster in April.

The court heard from prosecutor Melanie Winterflood that the 40-year-old had previously been issued with a community protection notice.


But Gittings, who was represented at the hearing by defence solicitor Katherine Maynereid, had failed to comply with the notice in Ross-on-Wye between April 14 and April 17, by allowing another person to stay at her address, magistrates were told.

Gittings, of Rudhall View, Lea, was fined £50 for breaching her community protection notice, with magistrates saying they had taken her guilty plea into account when imposing the penalty.

No order was made for prosecution costs to be paid.
