A thug is facing a long stretch after he was jailed for headbutting a woman.
NHS-worker Christopher Carr attacked the victim despite being slapped with a restraining order last October banning him from going to her home.
Carr, 38, barged into the woman’s home in Alvaston, Derbyshire, on September 9 and demanded to use the toilet before headbutting her in the face.
Carr was jailed for 30 weeks after he admitted breaching a restraining order, common assault and criminal damage at Derby Crown Court on Monday (9/10).
Recorder Pete Ievins jailed said: ‘A court order was made and a court order must be obeyed.
‘This is your second breach of this order and you walked into her house saying you wanted to go to the toilet.
‘You were banging and shouting and then you head butted her. Then, in your interview, you told a pack of lies.
‘You must not contact the victim and you must not go to her address.’
Recorder Ievins also ruled the restraining order remain in place indefinitely.
Prosecutor Phillip Plant said: ‘She had got home at 8.45pm and was getting ready to go out when she heard a knock at the door.
‘She opened it and it was this defendant who barged his way in saying he wanted to go to the toilet.
‘She says he was in the house for around 20 minutes banging around and making loud noises.
‘He behaving in a strange way which scared her.
‘He kept saying to her ‘you are not going anywhere’ and drew his head back to headbutt her in the face.
‘She said the force bust open her top lip and left her nose feeling sore and painful.’
Carr also ripped a cable and electrical socket connecting the woman’s freezer to the wall.
He had 13 convictions for 18 offences, including previously breaching the restraining order in July and also has previous convictions for common assault and criminal damage.
Exdol Mitchell, defending, said: ‘This has been his first taste of custody and he has found it a rather unpleasant experience.
‘He is very much ashamed of his actions.’
