A MAN has appeared in court accused of breaking into his ex-girlfriend’s home and trashing it.
Stephen Jackson, 52, was before Huddersfield Magistrates’ Court yesterday.
He faces charges of burglary, criminal damage and harassment.
Vanessa Schofield, prosecuting, said that Jackson had been in a relationship with Susan Sweeney which had ended.
On September 6 he is alleged to have broken into her home on Longcroft Street in Newsome.
Ms Schofield said: “He had gone to the house and broken in via a window.
“He then ‘graffitties’ the house, spraying words like ‘s**g’ and ‘b***h’.
Jackson, of Lockwood Scar, Lockwood, caused damage to the walls and kitchen units. He also stole from the house computer equipment, cameras, electrical items, sex toys and other personal effects, said Ms Schofield.
He was also said to have harassed Miss Sweeney by sending her text messages and emails.
He faces further charges of driving whilst disqualified and driving without insurance.
Jackson denies all the charges and will stand trial for the burglary, criminal damage and harassment charges at Bradford Crown Court.
Magistrates denied his application for bail.
He will next appear before the court on January 19 via a prison video link.
