A WINCHESTER phone pest who breached an ASBO to contact police has been given a three-year conditional discharge.

Steven Shaw, 40, of Trussell Crescent, Weeke, called the police on November 6 without a genuine emergency or about a current police investigation, Basingstoke Magistrates’ Court heard.

Shaw denied the charge but was convicted after a brief trial.

A second charge that he contacted police on December 30 was withdrawn.
