AN ISLE of Wight man posted vile messages about the mother of his child, breaching a non-molestation order.

Keifer Brenchley, of HMP Bullingdon, appeared before Isle of Wight magistrates via video link on Tuesday, March 19.

The 26-year-old admitted breaching a non-molestation order between June 23 and June 25 of last year.

Liz Miller, prosecuting, said Brenchley posted several abusive and derogatory comments about the mother of his child on social media.  

She said the posts were shown to the victim, who was upset and offended by them.

Among the messages, Brenchley wrote: “I will probably get arrested for posting this, but I don’t really care at this point.”

The victim said the comments caused her to have a panic attack, and put her in fear of Brenchley, who she described as “a very violent person at times”.

The court heard Brenchley had a long list of previous convictions and was four months into the court order when he posted the messages.

Oscar Vincent, defending, said funding had been granted for a psychiatric report, and Brenchley saw his case adjourned to April 19.

He was granted unconditional bail until that date.
