Threw stones at window

A BRIDLINGTON man broke a double glazed window on his partner’s house after the pair had an argument.

Jason Andrew McLoughlin, of Esplanade, threw stones at Sarah Peace’s council house when he was unable to get inside on Thursday, November 3.

He went to her home in an effort to sort out their problems.

The couple have a one-year-old son and another child on the way.

Prosecutor Michael Waudby said: “On Thursday, November 3 they had an argument and he called her numerous names.

“He started throwing stones at the window. He got a larger stone and damaged the window.”

“He did not intend to break the window but admits his actions were reckless.”

The 39-year-old, who had been drinking at the time, handed himself in to the police afterwards and admitted to what he had done. He also paid for the damage he caused.

Mitigating, Richard Drew said: “He looks back on his actions with a sense of regret.”

McLoughlin appeared at Bridlington Magistrates Court last Wednesday, and pleaded guilty to causing criminal damage.

Presiding magistrate Martin Dodgson, who sentenced the defendant to 12 months conditional discharge for a one-year period, said: “It was a rash act.” In addition, McLoughlin was ordered to pay costs of £65.
