Jail for man who breached harassment restraining order

A man has appeared in court after breaching a harassment restraining order.

Police were called to reports that Ishrat Khan had entered a property in Jarvis Avenue, Bakersfield, drunk and shouting at people inside the address.

Forty-seven-year-old Khan then pleaded with them not call the police on him.

Officers attended and provided support to the victims after the incident and were later led to an outbuilding in the garden where they arrested him.

Khan, of Jarvis Avenue, Bakersfield, pleaded guilty to breaching his restraining order on 4 February 2021 at around 4.45pm.

One witness explained how they heard him ask for the police not to be called and ignored being asked to leave on several occasions.

They said: “I told Ishrat he should not be here and told him to leave and that I was going to call the police.

“He kept telling me not to call them.

“I called the police and put my phone on loudspeaker, so he knew that I was speaking to them.

“At this point, he just shook his head and walked out the door and I have immediately locked the door.

“A short while later the police arrived, and I told them that he wasn’t allowed to be here and that he had already left the house.

“He is well aware of his conditions because he said something like please don’t call the police because I will get three years.”

After refusing to attend the interview room Khan admitted to an officer that he had been drinking and stated: “I have been drinking and found myself there, that’s it.”

Khan was sentenced to 12 months in prison suspended for 24 months when he appeared at Nottingham Crown Court on Friday (20 August 2021).

He was also ordered to complete 35 rehabilitation requirement days, pay £156 victim surcharge and carry out a 115 alcohol abstinence monitoring requirement.

Police constable Aaron Harthill-Harrison, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “Khan showed a complete disregard and lack of respect of the courts by breaching his restraining order.

“It clearly meant nothing to him, and he didn’t think anything of attending an address he was prohibited from entering.

“I hope the positive action, in this case, can reassure people that we take breaches of restraining orders extremely seriously and will do everything in our power to protect people from harm.”
