AN ALCOHOLIC Chester woman who breached her ASBO for the seventh time since April has been committed for Crown Court for sentencing.
Christine Stanley, 62, of Pearl Lane, Vicars Cross, admitted breaching the order when she made a nuisance 999 call on Tuesday morning, which came just four days after she had been released from prison following a near-identical offence.
Magistrates at Chester, Ellesmere Port and Neston Magistrates Court heard Miss Stanley had left prison, and not long after had gone into a shop to buy cigarettes.
While there, she bought a large bottle of whisky and after she arrived at her home she drank heavily.
Prosecuting, Anne Rouse said: “Stanley rang 999 for ambulance, while she was in a drunken state. She talked about how she put her mum in a nursing home, and it became clear this was no emergency call.
“The police were contacted, they attended her home address and she was arrested.”
Defending, Ceri Evans said Stanley was in a vicious circle, adding: “She recognises and is sensitive to these issues, and is disgusted by them.”
Lisa Davies of the Probation Service said no real progress had been made and Stanley had not attended any planned appointments since the order was first imposed.
Miss Stanley was remanded in custody until she is to appear at Chester Crown Court.
