Driving past his ex's lands man in court
A SLEAFORD man twice drove past his ex's home in breach of a court order not to go within 100 metres of the property, a court was told.
Luke Cragg was spotted by his ex as she was standing outside her home smoking a cigarette.
Andrew Scott, prosecuting, told Lincoln Crown Court that at the time Cragg was the subject of a non-molestation order imposed by Boston County Court which banned him from going near the house in South Road, Chapel St Leonards.
Mr Scott said: "The defendant drove past and stared at her. Some time later in the day he drove past again."

Cragg was arrested later in the day. When questioned by police he admitted he knew the woman lived in the road but did not realise he had breached the court order by driving past her house on his way to work.
But in court Cragg, 28, of Tamer Road, Sleaford, admitted breaching the order on July 12. He also admitted breach of a suspended sentence order imposed for previous offences of affray and common assault.
He was given a 12-month community order with supervision, a 10-day specified activity requirement and ordered to pay a £60 victim surcharge.
Michael Cranmer-Brown, defending, said Cragg did not offer any violence or make any threats to his ex.
"He was working at a caravan park. He just wanted to get to work."
