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