Se­cret sex tor­men­tor who stalked ex is caged

Midweek Sport - - FRONT PAGE -

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.
