A woman who was convicted of grievous bodily harm after biting her boyfriend's testicles has been back in court.
Maria Topp, 52, avoided jail in 2013 despite biting Martin Douglas' scrotum so hard it left his testicles exposed. She was accused of breaching a restraining order.
South Tyneside Magistrates' Court heard she sent "three silly texts" to Douglas.
The original attack happened after a 10-hour drinking session at Mr Douglas' flat in Waterloo Street, Newcastle, signalling the end of their "turbulent" five-year relationship.
Topp was given an indefinite restraining order alongside a suspended sentence at Newcastle Crown Court.
Gavin Doig, prosecuting Topp six years ago, said at the time "his scrotum was ripped, his testicles were exposed and bloodied and it was the defendant that had done this to him."
Mr Douglas made a full recovery, magistrates were told.
But Topp sent him "non-threatening" messages between May 26 and 28 this year.
She was detained up by police for a weekend in a move that the Crown Prosecution Service said was "over the top".
Holly Common, prosecuting, said the original attack was "horrendous", and Mr Douglas needed two "major surgeries" to repair the damage.
The court heard he had made "overtones" towards her, which she had largely ignored.
