A MAN sent a text to a woman in breach of a restraining order only weeks after it was made, a court heard.
Thomas Westgate, aged 50, admitted the breach when he appeared at Plymouth Crown Court.
City magistrates made the order banning contact with the woman on September 9.
But Westgate, of Admiralty Street, Keyham, texted her on September 21.
Malcolm Clark, for Westgate, said he had mental health problems. He added that the text had asked the woman to call him.
Judge Paul Darlow deferred sentence for six months until April 25. He said: "You should not send her any texts. If you keep your nose clean you will hear nothing more of this."
A PUB in Keyham is encouraging residents to raise cash for soldiers by eating curry.
The Soldiers Charity Big Curry Fundraiser at Keyham Vaults, on Albert Road, in Devonport will be running the fundraiser until Sunday.
