AN Ellesmere Port man who repeatedly phoned his estranged wife and ordered taxis to her home was sentenced to a conditional discharge at Chester Magistrates court on Thursday.
Liam Foley, 30, of Grafton Road admitted to causing harassment, alarm and distress to his estranged wife.
Laurence Bestow prosecuting told the court how the couple had split up in April 2008, but it was in January this year that he started to repeatedly call her.
Mr Bestow said: “On the 23rd he made 22 calls to her, many aggressive and abusive towards her, leaving messages on her answer phone.
“On the 24th he made calls 11 times, on the 25th and 26th he made further calls.
“On 2 February there were further calls in the same manner, some threatening to assault her alleged new boyfriend.”
The court heard that it was then that he started ordering taxis to her address.
Defending Chris Hunt told the court that Foley was “utterly frustrated” and did have reasons for contacting Mrs Foley.
Magistrates sentenced Foley to a conditional discharge for two years, and ordered to pay £60 costs.
