Our thanks to Mike P for this. The start and end of the piece:
A woman police officer subjected her ex to a menacing six-month stalking campaign after he dumped her and took up with a new lover.
Detective Constable Kirsty Anderson – who worked in a domestic violence unit – used her own police force’s computer to threaten Michael Hall, 36, and his new partner, telling them: ‘Life will be hell.’
The jealous detective, 39, even told Mr Hall to watch his two sons who ‘could disappear’.
She also threatened to spread untrue rumours Mr Hall’s new girlfriend Sarah Stroud, 37, was HIV positive and said she would petrol bomb Miss Stroud’s home while her daughter, aged five, slept. [J4MB emphases]
Now the West Yorkshire police officer is facing jail after pleading guilty at Bradford Crown Court to harassing Mr Hall, leaving him in fear of violence.
She also admitted using police computers to access data which she was not authorised to view.
Anderson – who had dated Mr Hall for eight weeks [J4MB emphasis] after meeting via Tinder – began her campaign when he dumped her, sending him a series of emails warning ‘Ur life will be hell’ and ‘U will live a nightmare’…
The court heard Anderson – who has resigned from the force – had a ‘raft of mental health problems’. [J4MB: Clearly well suited to working in a domestic violence unit, then.]
She is due to be sentenced on January 26. [J4MB: A woman with a ‘raft of mental health problems’. Is there the remotest chance of a suspended sentence?]
