A HOMELESS man from Hereford has been up before the magistrates after breaking the terms of a domestic violence protection order issued by magistrates.

Stephen Breese, who was represented by A Rana Defence, pleaded guilty to one count of breaching a domestic violence protection order when he appeared before magistrates in Kidderminster in January.

The order had been made by magistrates in Kidderminster on January 26, after Breese was served with a domestic violence protection notice by a police constable on January 24, preventing him from contacting a woman or entering a street in Hereford.


The court heard from the prosecutor Colin Le-Roux that Breese, who is 65 years old, breached the order by entering the Hereford street listed on the order on January 31.

A complaint was then made against Breese for breaching the order.

Breese, of no fixed abode, was fined £33 by the court. He must pay the fine by March 7, magistrates said.

His guilty plea was taken into account when magistrates imposed the sentence.
