Suspended prison term for Christchurch man Daniel Russell who harassed two women
A CHRISTCHURCH man who admitted harassing two women over several months was given a suspended prison sentence.
Appearing at Poole Magistrates' Court, Daniel Russell (40), of Stour Road, entered guilty pleas to the two charges.
The first offence took place between September and November of last year and involved Russell arriving at the victim's home unannounced, messaging her relentlessly and making video calls. He also followed her to a local park.
The second victim, who was targeted between October and November of last year, was messaged extensively by Russell and he also attended her workplace.
Russell further admitted breaching an order imposed on 2nd December 2021 banning him from going to the home of one of the victims. Between 4th and 11th December he turned up on five occasions.
He was given an eight-week custodial sentence, suspended for 12 months.
The court also imposed a two-year restraining order and ordered him to pay £128 in court charges.
