A North Albury man who bombarded his ex-partner with highly offensive texts has been ordered to begin a men's behavioural change program before being sentenced.
Jarrod Heather sent the victim at least 150 text messages between November 12 and 18.
Many of the messages were too vulgar to be printed in this report, even with censoring.
IN OTHER NEWS:
Defence lawyer Mitchell Irwin has told Albury Local Court magistrate Richard Funston that Heather clearly needed help.
Mr Irwin said Heather's "immature behaviour" stemmed from his inability to "deal with this situation".
"(The messages) reflect how he doesn't know how to handle his problems."
Mr Irwin said he had recommended to Heather that he should take part in the behavioural change program that was now available in Albury.
"I think that's a good idea," the magistrate replied.
Mr Funston said the messages sent by Heather were terrible, with his offending aggravated by the fact he was on a community corrections order at the time.
Heather, 27, of Parkland Crescent, has pleaded guilty to using a carriage service to menace, harass or offend and to the contravention of an apprehended violence order.
Police went to the victim's home on November 18.
The woman, now 33, then gave a phone log of texts, voice messages and missed calls.
One of his texts read: "I do know what's going on in UR life, ha ha ha, and say what U wanna say to me."
The victim was civilised in her rare replies, such as: "If you really wanted a relationship with the kids you'd leave me alone and do mediation like normal people."
Heather will be sentenced on March 30.
