Man, 45, warned to expect a jail term

A man will be sentenced next month after he admitted driving a motorcycle dangerously.

Steven Anderson, 45, of Longfellow Court, Hebden Bridge, pleaded guilty to the offence, which relates to an incident on Adelaide Street in July, when he appeared before a judge at Bradford Crown Court on Tuesday.

Anderson also admitted breaching a county court non-molestation order by being within 100 metres of Catherine Anderson’s home and trying to contact her.

The defendant also pleaded guilty to assaulting another woman on the same day.

He denied two further charges of attempting to inflict grievous bodily harm and prosecutor Dave Mackay said the pleas were acceptable.

The case was adjourned for the preparation of a pre-sentence report and a psychiatric report on Anderson.

Anderson was remanded into custody until November 15, but Judge Peter Benson warned him he should expect a prison sentence.
