A MAN got soaking wet in the rain so went around to his former partner’s home hoping she would throw dry clothes out to him through the window.

Jamie Worrall appeared in court from custody because he was subject to a restraining order not to go to her home.

Worrall, 30, of Erw Las in Flint, admitted breaching the order by doing to the home of Caitlin Bellis in Prince of Wales Avenue in Flint, on June 18.

He received a 12 week prison sentence suspended for nine months with £85 costs and a £115 surcharge at North East Wales Magistrates’ Court at Mold.

Prosecutor Justin Espie said that the defendant banged on the windows in breach of the order and shouted “let me in, I am soaked. I have nowhere to go.”

He left when she said she would call the police but then returned and refused to leave.

When she showed him that she was ringing the police he said “are you really?” and allegedly picked up a plant pot and threw it against the door. No damage was caused.

Worrall denied picking up the plant pot and his solicitor Gary Harvey said that his client had a good work ethic as a painter and decorator.

That day he had been drinking, it had been raining heavily and he got soaked through.

His mother was not at home and he went to his former partner’s home hoping she would throw him a track suit out of the window.

It was not his intention to stay there but once dry he could have slept in a summer house at his mother’s home.

“This was an error of judgement,” said Mr Harvey.
