Nightmare neighbour lobs excrement in woman's garden during harassment campaign

A nightmare neighbour threw excrement into a terrified womans garden as part

of a harassment campaign. Lee Nicholson, 29, was already subject to two suspended prison sentences for tormenting his neighbour Jennifer Brydie before the latest clash. This time she found broken bottles and a cup sm

ashed in her garden, which Nicholson had lobbed over the wall dividing the two p

roperties, but when police arrived a bag of excrement then landed near her back gate. Newcastle Crown Court heard Miss Brydie has been left feeling like a prisoner in her own home and pre-sentence reports said Nicholson poses an risk of re-offending against the victim. Nicholson, who has mental health problems, admitted harassment and was sentenced to eight months in prison, meaning he will be released immediately as he has served four months on remand. Nicholson was first convicted of harassing Miss Brydie in November 2018, when he got a conditional discharge (Image: newcastle chronicle) Read MoreRelated ArticlesPolice urge fraud victims to speak out The court heard Miss Brydie, who lives in Corbridge, Northumberla

9. Later, while doing some gardening, she found a further broken sauce bottle. She could see Nicholson pacing up and down the back lane past her gate, holding a coffee mug. Prosecutor Emma Dowling said: Around an hour later she was in the rear yard reading when, all of a sudden, a glass item came over the wall from that direction. She was too scared to move. She was worried that if she tried to get back into the house, an item would hit her. She waited for a few minutes until she couldnt hear anyone in the rear yard nextdoor and went back into her home

address. Once she knew it was safe

she went back out to retrieve the broken item from her yard for the police. Police, who were aware of the previous problems Nicholson had caused, were called. Miss Dowling

said: While they were doing th

eir inquiries, an officer saw a white bag appear from next door and it landed at the back gate of the complainants address.

The policeman also noticed items in the house matching the design of other missiles he had thrown over the nine-foot wall dividing the properties. The court heard Nicholson was first convicted of harassing Miss Brydie in November 2018, when he got a conditional discharge. In March this year he got a suspended prison sentence for harassment and breaching the conditional discharge. Then in April he got a nine-month suspended sentence for harassment and common assault in relation to Miss Brydie. She said in a victim impact statement which she read to the court: Im a victim of hara

ssment following multiple incidents with my neighbour, Nicholson. Since he was sentenced in April, Ive been subjected to items being thrown over to my yard which could have hit me and c

aused serious injury. I reported all matters to the police but the items continued to be thrown even after he was arrested. It often happened six times a day and this has caused me stress. Because of this Ive had to seek help from my GP. I feel like a prisoner in my own house and couldnt carry out my normal life. He has no respect for the restraining order or the advice given by the judge. He has also pestered my dad. I had to live at my dads because of him. Judge Robert Adams sentenced Nicholson to eight months prison, with a restraining order banning him from contacting the victim or from entering Corbridge and Stocksfie

ld, which means he cannot go to his former address, where he lived with his dad, on Saint Helens Street, Corbridge. The judge said: One could argue it was intended to maximise distress by throwing excrement over the wall. Sue Hirst, defending, said the current offence happened over the course of one day. She told the court: I fully acknowledge there is no excuse for what she has had to to2020第55期最新跑狗图 lerate in this case. The defendant has considerable vulnerabilities. She added that accommodation has been found for him at a hostel in Newcastle. The court heard he has a psychiatric history, including autism and an intellectual disability and he is vulnerable.
