A KILTARLITY man who defied a court order not to contact his wife 24 hours after a Sheriff's instruction was this week jailed for four months at Inverness Sheriff Court.
Daniel Mould (34) appeared from custody at Inverness Sheriff Court on May 28 for the second day running after an earlier appearance on a domestic abuse charge.
At the time, Sheriff Gary Aitken granted him bail with the special conditions with a warning of consequences if he failed to observe it.
Mould who gave a bail address of Lister Road, Scunthorpe, admitted the breach of bail by contacting his wife in Kiltarlity on May 27.
Defence solicitor Neil Wilson told the court: "He made phone calls as a welfare check before heading south. He was stopped by police near Fort Augustus."
Sentencing Mould when the case called this week, Sheriff Aitken told Mould: "You have an appalling record and were warned what would happen if you made contact."
Mould's sentence means he will be released imminently as he will only serve half of the four months.
