Woman accused of breaching noisy sex asbo
Neighbours of a woman who ended up in court for her noisy love-making were savouring peace and quiet today after she was locked up accused of breaking her anti-social behaviour order.
Caroline Cartwright, 48, was remanded in custody until 5 May charged with three breaches of her Asbo in just 10 days.
The four-year order was imposed by magistrates in Sunderland on 17 April and prevented Cartwright "making excessive noise" anywhere in England.
However, Houghton le Spring Magistrates' Court heard that police arrested her on 18 April, on 22 April and again on 26 April after reports from neighbours she was flouting the ban with husband Steve.
She was subsequently charged with three counts of breaching her Asbo by making excessive noise that can be heard by neighbours.
Cartwright appeared before magistrates from custody having been arrested yesterday and charged with the third offence.
Prosecutor Claire Ward said neighbours had complained to police on three separate occasions about early morning noises of shouting, moaning, groaning and a bed banging against the wall coming from the Cartwrights' home.
Accompanied by two dock officers, she spoke only to confirm her name, age and address and enter her not guilty pleas.
Cartwright, whose husband sat in the public gallery, elected to be tried by jury and the case will be transferred to Newcastle Crown Court at a later date.
A bail application from defence solicitor Peter Lothian was refused.
Cartwright, of Hall Road, Concord, Washington, Tyne and Wear was remanded in custody and ordered to appear via video link before Sunderland Magistrates' Court on 5 May.
On 17 April Cartwright was convicted for five breaches of an abatement notice and fined a total of £515, and magistrates also imposed the Asbo.
The conditions of the order banned Cartwright from making excessive noise, knocking, shouting, screaming or vocalisation that can be heard in neighbouring properties or outside the house.
It also prohibited her from playing loud music.
