A DOC­TOR ac­cused of stalk­ing and in­tim­i­da­tion has been cleared of one count against him but a jury failed to reach ver­dicts on two other al­le­ga­tions.

Gary Lucitt, a se­nior ob­ste­tri­cian and gy­nae­col­o­gist regis­trar who had been em­ployed at Sin­gle­ton Hos­pi­tal in Swansea, stood trial ac­cused of stalk­ing a woman af­ter the break­down of their year­long re­la­tion­ship and also of send­ing her in­tim­i­dat­ing mes­sages.

The 39-year-old, of Re­galia Ter­race, Llanelli, was also al­leged to have sent in­tim­i­dat­ing What­sApp mes­sages to a wit­ness in the trial due to be heard against him.

Lucitt de­nied all counts dur­ing a week-long trial at Swansea Crown Court.

Yes­ter­day the jury found Lucitt not guilty of one count of in­tim­i­da­tion, in re­spect of the al­leged mes­sages to a wit­ness, but could not reach ver­dicts con­cern­ing on the stalk­ing charge or the other in­tim­i­da­tion charge. The case will now be re-listed to dis­cuss the pos­si­bil­ity of a re­trial.

Lucitt, who had pre­vi­ously worked at Prince Philip, Glang­wili and Princess of Wales hos­pi­tals, was re­manded in cus­tody by Judge Keith Thomas.

Gary Lucitt was cleared of one charge.
