A MAN has ad­mit­ted ha­rass­ing a woman by send­ing her emails and driv­ing past her work.

Martin Hahn, 53, put the vic­tim through the or­deal for al­most 12 weeks last year.

He orig­i­nally de­nied the charge of ha­rass­ment, but on the day of his trial Hahn, of Par­adise Street, Mac­cles­field, pleaded guilty.

At Stock­port mag­is­trates court, he was sen­tenced to a com­mu­nity or­der for nine months.

As part of the sen­tence he must com­plete 100 hours un­paid work and at­tend up to 15 days re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion ac­tiv­ity re­quire­ment.

In court doc­u­ments Hahn ad­mit­ted that the ha­rass­ment in­volved send­ing nu­mer­ous emails and driv­ing past her place of work on sev­eral oc­ca­sions.

It started on Au­gust 16 and lasted on Novem­ber 5.

To pro­tect the vic­tim the court is­sued a re­strain­ing or­der ban­ning Hahn from any con­tact with the vic­tim for two years.

The or­der in­cluded a ban from go­ing within 400m of an ad­dress in Birch Vale.

He was or­dered to pay £100 com­pen­sa­tion to the vic­tim, as well pay­ing £300 to­wards pros­e­cu­tion costs, and £85 in other court costs.
