A West Albury man already having to wear a tracking device over domestic violence offences has now been jailed for doing it once more.
Some concern had been raised as to how a jail sentence for Kevin Galbraith could sit alongside the intensive corrections order he was already serving.
But in the end magistrate Rodney Brender decided it could, jailing Galbraith - who was already in custody, bail refused - to a fixed term of three months.
It means Galbraith, 27, who pleaded guilty, will remain behind bars until July 5.
Mr Brender imposed the jail term for each of the three domestic violence-related charges of contravene an apprehended violence order, stalk or intimidate and threaten to destroy or damage property.
Albury Local Court heard this week that Galbraith was released from Junee jail over other domestic violence offences, also involving his partner, on March 26.

Galbraith's latest offending took place a week ago, after his partner, 26, collected him from his brother's address, also in West Albury.
He had been drinking alcohol and smoking methamphetamine.
After returning home, she went to sleep in their bedroom while he played on a gaming console in the lounge room.
She woke at 4am and went into the lounge room to see Galbraith on his mobile phone.
She then returned to bed, followed by Galbraith who claimed he'd seen a photo of her on a social media website "posing in a sexual manner".
But the woman in the photo wasn't his partner, the only resemblance being their matching blonde hair.
This set-off arguments that prompted her to say she was leaving, to which Galbraith threatened: "I'll smash the house up then."
He then motioned with his raised hand that he was going to throw his mobile phone at her, causing her fear.
The woman was desperate to leave so about 6.15pm she sent a friend an urgent text, in which she said: "Call police ... Kevin on drugs, don't respond back to me, just do it. In danger."
Fifteen minutes later, Galbraith was arrested.
