Karimi, 39, whose address was given as HMP Doncaster, had been found guilty in his absence of two offences of breaching a restraining order on June 10.

He was seen in Tunstall Terrace West in the city centre on December 14 last year and January 20 this year, which he was barred from doing by terms of the order.

He was jailed for eight weeks on each charge, to run consecutively, and ordered to pay £300 compensation.

Magistrates said they had no option but to impose a custodial sentence given that he had twice deliberately breached the indefinite order, the fact that Karimi had been serving a conditional discharge at the time and bearing in mind the impact on his victim.
