Secret sex tormentor who stalked ex is caged
A SEX pest who secretly terrorised his former partner with obscene text messages and heavy breathing calls, has been jailed.
Martin Hunt plagued his former partner Maria Cook for 10 days with chilling messages from a withheld number.
Miss Cook was so terrified she turned to Hunt for help – unaware her former partner of 15 years was actually her tormentor.
Hunt, 49, of Bishop’s Tawton, Devon, even slept at her home to “provide protection” while she was receiving the crank calls.
Miss Cook became so scared she bought extra locks for the doors and borrowed her son’s Mastiff as a gaurd dog.
Hunt even gave her an air pistol to keep under her pillow.
She showed Hunt a text which said, “Leave your curtains open so I can watch you undress again”.
Hunt admitted he made the calls to scare Miss Cook out of the home they had shared because he resented her living there after he had gone bankrupt.
Lorry mechanic Hunt admitted three harassment charges at Barnstaple Magistrates Court, North Devon and was jailed for 18 weeks.
