I have reported the matter to the Police and they have tole me to seek legal advise as to one possible course of action to prevent this. Unfortunately the harassment is the aftermath of an affair and I am aware that the gentleman in question is very volatile and aggressive. I have barred his phone number from my landline and mobile phone but during one call he quoted my address and obviously he had found that out some how. We live some 20 miles away. He has made verbal threats to me which make me fear for my own safety. He has promised to find me and break every bone in my body. I had deleted his previous texts and logs before today and was not aware of his phone number. He has phoned me again this morning, leaving a non-aggressive message but saying that I have refused to meet him so he will now be going to see my wife and 15 and 12 year old daughters. I must find a way to keep him away from my family. I look forward to hearing from you
Hi, I am still waiting for an answer to my query sent on 20/5. Can you please respond.
Yes I did ask:
Have you reported all the incidents to the police please? Have they warned him?
Yes, they have served him with a warning notice. However he and his wife are still trying to contact me… I have a call blocker on my phone but I can see that they are trying to contact me. Somehow his call came through as voice mail yesterday and said that he would come to my village and home village to distribute texts that he had found between myself and his wife which are of a sexual nature. In addition he has threatened to show them to my wife and more worryingly my 12 and 15 year old daughters
Ok - really if this person has been warned then you should report it back to the Police.
They should then arrest and prosecute this person.
Clearly that would be the best option as it is free and the Police do all the hard work
But you can take out an injunction yourself.
You would need to complete form N1
The matter would then be listed at Court for an interim hearing.
At this if the matter is not contested the Order can be made final
If the matter is contested then the Judge will decide what directions to give for a final hearing and also whether to make an interim order
If there is an order, final or interim and it is breached then this is contempt of Court
A Judge can warn, fine or send the person to prison
You may get legal aid but this is much harder now and depends on your circumstances
