An 83-year-old man jailed for repeatedly raping a classic FM at home has died while serving his sentence.
Ian Trainer was jailed for 24 weeks in February this year for violating a restraining order.
But after his release, he was sent back to jail for disobeying orders.
The pensioner was issued a restraining order in 2010 that prohibited him from playing ‘any audio above normal speaking level’ from 9am to 10pm.
Today, MOJ confirmed to Trainer, who died tragically. A spokesman for the Prison Service said: ‘HMP Liverpool prisoner Ian Trainer died in hospital on 23 November.
‘Prison and probation locals have been informed.’
The spokesman did not confirm the cause of death of the trainer and said it was a matter for the coroner.
In a February hearing, Liverpool Magistrates’ Court heard how Trainer’s neighbor Thomas Michael Thompson had received ‘noise pollution’ from his neighbor’s property for several years.
After being called in to hear Mr Thompson’s voice, on December 17, 2019, a police officer was present at the trainer’s property at Liverpool’s entry, Eaton Drive.
The court heard that the trainer told the officer that ‘I like music at the level I enjoy’, because he was arrested for violating control orders.
A statement from the court said the trainer said he had a bad cold and “heard only one ear.”
He further told the officer that being on steroids for treatment meant they could not wear headphones because they had ‘ear itching’.
The judge, who was sentenced to 24 weeks in prison for violating the order, told the court that he had “played music at a level that caused trouble.”
The trainer was also ordered to pay ব্য 600 in court costs and then 12 122 to the aggrieved sub-charge Mr. Thompson.
The pensioner reappeared in Liverpool Crown Court in June via video link to HMP Altcourse and has been remanded.
He was again accused of violating the court order by playing music too loudly.
The trainer pleaded not guilty to the charges, claiming the allegations were ‘malicious lies’.
He further added that he has an underlying health problem.
It is not clear whether the trainer, who has appeared in court more than once in recent years, has been convicted of new charges at the time of his death.
