[A] MAN has admitted flouting a court restraining order both by having contact with a child and creating a Facebook account.
Brian Key, 49, appeared in the dock at Carlisle Crown Court today (MON) to face two charges. Both relate to breaches of a restraining order Key received, in May, 2014, as part of his punishment for previous criminal conduct.
During a short hearing in front of Judge Peter Davies, Key pleaded guilty to both breaches. One was committed on October 26 last year when he communicated with a child aged under 16. The other states that, on June 23, he created a membership Facebook account when prohibited from doing so.
Judge Davies heard that during a previous magistrates’ court appearance Key had also admitted a further breach. This occurred on September 29, when he approached/communicated with children aged under 16.
Key, previously of Whitehaven and now of Freshfield Court, Carlisle, was told he would be sentenced on Wednesday morning.
In the meantime he was remanded in custody by Judge Davies.
