Man (30) jailed for sending late night abusive social media messages in Derry
Bernard Cooke (30) of Cornshell Fields in Derry admitted a charge of improper use of the communication network on February 6 last year.
The court heard on Friday that between 2.30am and 3.10am on that date Cooke had sent a series of abusive messages that caused 'distress' to the injured party.
One of the messages said he was going to 'come to the door' of a female.
Defence solicitor Seamus Quigley said there were ten messages in total and some of them were what he described as 'neutral'.
He said others were 'much worse' and said that the time the messages were sent was significant.
Cooke was jailed for three months and a Restraining Order was imposed for a period of 3 years.
