AN Inkpen man has been banned from going to Hungerford Primary School.

The order was made by Reading magistrates on Monday, October 11.

In the dock was Simon Ruta.

Court (52477725)
Court (52477725)

The 39-year-old, who lives in Pottery Lane in the village, admitted breaching a non-molestation order made by a court in Swindon, Wiltshire, in July, by approaching a female and causing her distress in Thatcham on Friday, October 1.

The court heard Mr Ruta has a previous conviction for assaulting Edward Ruta by beating him in Thatcham on September 6 last year,

Mr Ruta had denied that offence.

However, the court did not believe his account and he was convicted following a trial.

Mr Ruta also admitted causing £95 worth of damage to the rear window of a car belonging to Edward Ruta on the same occasion.

For those offences he was was made subject to a 12-month community order and required to complete a 30-day thinking skills course.

In addition, Mr Ruta was ordered to pay £95 compensation for the damage, £200 costs and a statutory victim services surcharge of £95.

Finally, he was made subject to a restraining order preventing him from contacting Edward Ruta either directly or indirectly, for 12 months.

Mr Ruta therefore admitted breaching the community order made on that occasion by re-offending while it was still in force.

For his latest offence, of breaching the non-molestation order in respect of the female and breaching the community order, Mr Ruta was made subject to a fresh community order, to last until April 10, 2023.

This included an exclusion requirement - specifically, not to enter Prospect Road in Hungerford.

The requirement will be monitored for eight weeks by an electronic tag.

In addition Mr Ruta was made subject to a restraining order to last until April 10, 2023, which prevents him from contacting the female either directly or indirectly and from going to Prospect Road in Hungerford or Hungerford Primary School.

Finally, he was ordered to pay £85 costs plus a statutory victim services surcharge of £95.
