Stacy Clemence, of Rotherham Baulk, Carlton in Lindrick pleaded guilty to stalking and malicious communications and was sentenced to two years at Nottingham Crown Court.

The 33-year-old met the man online through a dating website in September 2017 and their relationship started to blossom quickly, however it soon broke down as she began to constantly ask for money.

The victim tried to end the relationship countless times and changed his phone number, however she managed to get hold of him again and continued to threaten him.

Stacy Clemence, 33, of Rotherham Baulk, Carlton in Lindrick pleaded guilty to stalking and malicious communications and was sentenced to two years at Nottingham Crown Court.

The woman used Facebook, KIK and WhatsApp to contact him and ask him for money, stating if he didn't pay her £600 she would call the man a paedophile on social media.

He refused and she posted a message on Facebook on the man's employers page.

The victim called the police and she was arrested in February 2019.

Police Constable Jenna Sorensen said: “These kind of harassment offences can have a very considerable impact on people’s lives.

"The messages and calls caused the victim serious alarm and distress. The contact made by Clemence was unwanted and it caused a lot of anxiety for the victim. It caused adverse effects on his usual day-to-day activities and had a huge impact on his mental health.

“These type of offences cause a significant amount of fear and distress and we simply won’t tolerate this kind of behaviour.

"We take these incidents extremely seriously and encourage anyone who might be experiencing this to contact the police immediately."
