Lewis James, aged 20, currently of Raleigh Street, Nottingham, appeared before Chesterfield Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday, December 18, and admitted breaching the order.

Under the terms of the order, James is banned from having any contact with a child under 16, or staying at any address where any child under 16 resides.

The court was told that James had met a new partner and had stayed at her address in Buxton, where she lives with her three-month-old child between October 7 and 10.

James is still seeing the woman, but they have since ‘got their act together’ and started meeting away from her home and the child, the court heard.

He will appear before Derby Crown Court for sentencing on January 8 and was released on unconditional bail.
