Christopher James Morrison admitted harassing his victim on October 9 when he visited her South Shields home “on numerous occasions when not welcome”.
Morrison, 19, of no fixed address, also pleaded guilty to causing £50 of damage to the woman’s front gate the previous day.
South Tyneside Magistrates’ Court has now locked him up for eight weeks after deciding the offences were “so serious” because they were committed shortly after his release from custody and were “aggravated by his previous record of offending”.
A restraining order was also imposed which forbids him from contacting two named people until October 11 next year.
Morrison, who received credit for his guilty pleas, was additionally ordered to pay a £128 victim surcharge and £85 prosecution costs at a rate of £5 a week from December 12.
