A WOMAN was ordered to hand her mobile phone over in Mandurah Magistrates Court on Friday.

Ania Sandra Jasinski appeared in court after police found her in the front yard of a man who had taken out a restraining order against her on Tuesday, July 25.

Jasinski’s court appointed counsel told Magistrate Richard Young the man had been sending her client texts asking her to come over.

Magistrate Young asked to see Jasinski’s phone and read her messages.

“Sorry there’s a lot of swearing,” Jasinski said.

“If you don’t come tonight you don’t love me,” Magistrate Young read.

“There’s non-stop dialogue all the way up to today,” he said.

Counsel for Jasinski told the court her client has a mild intellectual disability.

When police were called to arrest Jasinski on the Tuesday, she had already been at the house since Friday.

Magistrate Young said Jasinski is a forgiving person.

“If someone took a restraining order out against me, I’d be running in the other direction,” he said.

“You have the patience of Jesus Christ himself.

“But it’s important you realise that multiple breaches of a violence restraining order can lead to imprisonment.”

Magistrate Young said he was satisfied Jasinski is not a danger to the victim or the community.

“He was constantly inviting you to his house and addresses you in fond terms,” Magistrate Young said.

“He’s playing a game with the system and doesn’t deserve a restraining order.”

He encouraged Jasinski to move on from the victim.

She was fined $1000 and ordered to pay $100 in costs.
