A man who breached a non-molestation order by contacting his grandfather has been given a suspended sentence.

Peter Crossan (27), of Mantlin Cottage, Mantlin Road, Kesh made contact with his grandfather on August 10, just after 9pm, Enniskillen Magistrates Court heard last Monday, November 14.

Police spoke with the injured party who said he received a call from a number he did not recognise but he recognised his grandson's voice.

After a brief conversation, the call was terminated, the court heard.

There was a second call as well from Crossan, who was arrested and made admissions during an interview with police.

Gary Black, Crossan's solicitor, told the court that his client was living in Health Trust-supported accommodation at the time but has since relocated to live with his father for more support and, combined with the positive work undertaken by Probation, hopefully Crossan would not be back in court.

Mr. Black said Crossan had a positive relationship with his grandfather but alcohol was an issue with the calls which were more of a "nuisance rather than a menace", the court heard.

District Judge Steven Keown warned Crossan that if he kept doing this he would be in breach of several suspended sentences.

For breaching the non-molestation order, Crossan was handed a three-month prison sentence, suspended for two years.
