AN Oldham man who sent numerous threatening texts to a pregnant woman over a three-day period in December has been given a four-month prison sentence, suspended for two years.

Brian Ogden, 32, of Union Street, Oldham, sent the messages to the woman between December 5 and 8.

Ogden was also given a restraining order preventing him from contacting his victim directly or indirectly, except through the family court to arrange contact with his children or via a solicitor.

He was also banned from being within 500 yards of an address in Failsworth, when he appeared at Tameside Magistrates' Court on Friday (February 21).

Ogden was also ordered to pay £250 costs and £122 to victim services.
