Man ‘lucky’ to avoid jail af­ter send­ing sex­ual pics of woman to her mother

Macclesfield Express - - BEFORE THE BENCH - KAREN BRITTON

AMAN was told he is lucky not to be sent to pri­son af­ter send­ing sex­ual photos of a former part­ner to her mother.

Jamie Brown, 34, sent photos of the woman, from Mac­cles­field, in her un­der­wear, a court heard.

It was part of a pe­riod of ha­rass­ment against the woman.

He wanted to carry on the re­la­tion­ship and per­sisted in con­tact­ing her, via so­cial me­dia, texts, phone calls and other means.

He sent 483 mes­sages and made 72 calls and 115 calls to her work.

Brown sent four photos to her mother, three of her and one of a ran­dom woman he down­loaded from the in­ter­net.

Pro­ba­tion of­fi­cers pre­pared a re­port for mag­is­trates ahead of his sen­tenc­ing at Stock­port Mag­is­trates court this week and mag­is­trates had the op­tion of cus­tody.

But he was given a com­mu­nity order, and told he was lucky he was not go­ing to pri­son.

Pros­e­cut­ing, Karen Saffman said: “The de­fen­dant and com­plainant were in a re­la­tion­ship which came to an end.

“She said she was with some­one else how­ever he per­sis­tently sent [so­cial me­dia] mes­sages, texts and made calls and when she blocked him he found other av­enues to con­tact her.

“The vic­tim has been ex­tremely anx­ious and is scared to go out.

“She thinks she’s be­ing judged by peo­ple.”

Brown, of New Line, Bacup, ad­mit­ted dis­clos­ing a pri­vate sex­ual photo- graph and ha­rass­ment.

De­fend­ing, Mr Hughes said: “This is a young man who learned a dif­fi­cult les­son.

“The in­ci­dent was some con­sid­er­able time ago and there has been no con­tact since.

“The photos are not the most gross ex­am­ples. They were taken by the com­plainant for a former boyfriend which she had given Jamie ac­cess to.

“It was im­pul­sive. He’s a ner­vous, qui­etly spo­ken man and he suf­fers from learn­ing dif­fi­cul­ties.”

Mag­is­trates gave Brown a nine-month com­mu­nity order with a 15 day Re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion Ac­tiv­ity Re­quire­ment and 12 week cur­few. He must pay £200 com­pen­sa­tion, £85 costs and £85 vic­tim sur­charge.

Chair­man of the bench Wal­ter Bar­rett said: “We are go­ing with the rec­om­men­da­tion of the re­port, you are lucky you’re not go­ing to jail.”

Brown is sub­ject to a two year re­strain­ing order ban­ning him from con­tact­ing the vic­tim and two other women con­nected to the case. RE­CENT cases head at South and East Cheshire mag­is­trates court:
