On-the-run man makes Facebook suicide threats

First published in News

A MAN made a suicide threat on Facebook after going on the run from court.

Stuart Innes, 48, who has been living at the bail hostel in Westwey Road, Weymouth, was due to be sentenced at Gloucester Crown Court yesterday for two breaches of a restraining order requiring him to stop contacting his ex-wife Rachel and the law firm Brand Mellon.

Innes, who was unrepresented, was warned by Judge Jamie Tabor QC he could face jail and was advised to seek legal advice.

Shortly afterwards, Innes abandoned his belongings including a guitar case and fled from the court building, prompting the judge to issue a warrant for his arrest.

Later, he described his situation in a post on his Facebook page, said he was in hiding and had some anti-depressant tablets.

At numerous court appearances over the last six years, judges have been told Innes has never been able to move on from the break-up of his marriage and the loss of the £1 million fortune he and his wife had built up in business together. He has admitted regular breaches of a restraining order which prevents him contacting her or her solicitor.

I can find no 'facebook suicide threat' and no mention of having anti-depressant pills. Perhaps it has been removed.

There is an account of a suicide threat made when police came to his door (hardly on the run, then) and the ensuing stand-off.

Life is, by no stretch of the imagination, running smoothly for Stuart at the moment. I, for one, hope he gets the help he needs (mentally and legally) to get it straightened out.
