A man who turned up drunk at his ex-wife’s home just days after getting a restraining order not to visit her was jailed for 12 months at Lincoln Crown Court on Friday.

Ivanavs Trofimovas was given a suspended jail sentence only 12 days earlier for a previous assault on his wife and was ordered not to visit her home in Boston, for 28 days.

Adam Pearson, prosecuting, said Trofimovas appeared outside the woman’s door at 4am and woke her banging on the windows and shouting.

His ex let him in as she felt sorry for him and allowed him to stay the following night.

Mr Pearson said initially there were no problems but Trofimovas then began drinking vodka and became aggressive and shouting about their impending divorce.

He was asked to leave and when he didn’t police were called.

Trofimovas, 37, now living in Ripon Street, Lincoln, admitted breach of a restraining order as a result of the incident on January 25.

Neil Sands, defending, said “His problem is drink and the inter-play and a man who is realising that a relationship of 10 years is coming to an end.”

He said Trofimovas has moved away from Boston and there have been no further breaches of the order.
