Prison sentence for man who couldn't get over ex
A SKEGNESS man breached a restraining order because he was unable to accept his relationship was over, a court has heard.
Daniel Bardovskis, 25, now living in a Salvation Army hostel, admitted breaching the order when he appeared in custody at Skegness Magistrates Court.
He was given a four-month prison sentence, suspended for 18 months.
Marie Stace, prosecuting, said Bardovskis had split up with his partner of five years, Natasha Chaplin, in January last year.

When he continued to stalk and harass her, a restraining order was finally issued in March which ordered him to have no contact with her except through solicitors.
In August Miss Chaplin was out with friends and they saw Bardovskis, who then followed them around the town.
This resulted in a community order and night time curfew for breaching the order.
Miss Chaplin later changed her telephone number but Bardoskis obtained it and bombarded her with 96 telephone calls and messages over an 18 hour period.
Ms Stace said none of the messages left were threatening but saying that he thought they had a future together.
In mitigation, Gordon Holt said: "The calls were more begging than threatening."
He also told the magistrates that the same weekend he had attempted suicide by slashing his wrist with a knife.
The court heard he was due to start a programme addressing domestic violence and building relationships as part of his community order. As well as the suspended sentence, Bardovskis was ordered to pay a victim surcharge of £80. The restraining order and the community order will continue.
