Man threat­ened ex

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Uk&world Update -

A CITY man who threat­ened to kill his for­mer part­ner has avoided a jail term.

Igor Solovjovs (41), of War­bon Av­enue, New Eng­land, ap­peared at Peter­bor­ough Crown Court yes­ter­day where he was sen­tenced for caus­ing fear of vi­o­lence by ha­rass­ment.

He had pleaded guilty to the charge at a pre­vi­ous hear­ing.

The court heard how he had texted Olga Fe­dorenkova threat­en­ing to harm him­self in Septem­ber last year. On Septem­ber 17, he texted her again, this time threat­en­ing to kill her.

Jonathan Seely, de­fend­ing, told the court that Solovjovs was not se­ri­ous about the threats and de­scribed his mood as ‘pas­sion­ate and plead­ing.’

Judge Neil McKit­trick sen­tenced him to 26 weeks in prison, sus­pended for 12 months and or­dered him to carry out 150 hours un­paid work.

Solovjovs was also or­dered to pay £350 com­pen­sa­tion and £350 costs, as well as be­ing given a re­strain­ing or­der, ban­ning him from mak­ing any di­rect or in­di­rect con­tact with Mrs Fe­dorenkova.
