Valentine’s wish among dozens of calls linked to ex on no-contact order

A man has run into trouble with the law after leaving a Valentine’s Day wish for his ex-fiancée.

It was one of 32 voice mails left by the man for his former girlfriend while he was on a no-contact order with her, the Crown alleges.

"Hi, I just want to say Happy Valentine’s Day, and I still love you, always will."

During a bail hearing in Brandon court on Monday, Crown attorney Rich Lonstrup quoted the above voice-mail message as he outlined the following allegations that a man repeatedly violated court orders by contacting his ex.

The man was initially arrested after he forced his way into his former fiancée’s Brandon home on Feb. 6 and punched her in the chest, Lonstrup said.

The suspect was then released but, starting the next day, he contacted his ex numerous times in violation of a no-contact order.

Within nine days, he phoned the woman 84 times but left no messages, called and left 32 voice-mail messages, and sent her five emails and two text messages.

In the various messages, he told the woman he was sorry and that he loves her. Although — while he doesn’t make any physical threats — he also made vague threats to take legal action against her.

The man was arrested again, but in mid-April after being released on bail, he created a profile on a local website and sent a couple of unwanted "friend" requests to his former girlfriend.

He also sent her a couple of messages through the site, including one that wished her happy birthday, Lonstrup said.

On Monday, Judge John Combs released Sheldon William Ross Gould, 26, on bail on charges of break and enter, assault, breaches and another unrelated charge.

Gould is to live in Virden and isn’t allowed to use the Internet except for work purposes. His next court date is later this month.

The allegations against him haven’t been proven in court.
