A HARASSMENT victim had to flee her home when her ex-boyfriend’s mother called to say he was on his way over to stab her, a court has heard. The victim, who cannot be named for legal reasons, had her lifestyle ‘completely destroyed’ by Simon Marshment, a thug with connections to the EDL and Casuals groups.

The Shakespeare Road resident told police she was the one harassing him. But, when officers warned her to stay away from Marshment, she showed them his abusive messages, several of which were read to Burton Magistrates’ Court.

They read: “I can’t beat you in my usual way so I must go through the proper channels.

“This is only the start. It’s your choice how far this goes. If I see you out I’ll ruin your life and your family’s. Now the fun begins.

“I’m going to make you pay. You’ve hurt me and now it’s my turn. What colour do you want your car – cream, pink or burned out? I’ve got a special surprise for you this weekend. I’m quite excited.”

Marshment was jailed for 18 weeks and ordered not to contact the victim.
