A businesswoman who threw dog poo at her estranged husband after suspecting he had cheated on her with prostitutes has been ordered to carry out 150 hours unpaid work.
Deborah Addams, 56, who runs a holiday letting company, was convicted of a campaign of harassment against builder Geoffrey Mylcrist.
It included sending a naked photo of him to one of his employees, bombarding him with hundreds of texts and breaching a court restraining order imposed following a previous conviction of harassing him.
Mrs Addams, of Kemp Road, Whitstable, denied harassment, assault, disclosing a sexual photograph and breaching a restraining order, but was convicted of all charges at an earlier trial and the case adjourned for reports.
Today she was sentenced at Folkestone magistrates court to a one year community order, including the unpaid work, and ordered to pay £850 prosecution costs.
Judge Justin Baron warned her she faced prison if she broke the order not to contact Mr Mylchrist in any way, adding: "I would like to think you have moved on."
During her trial last month, he heard how the couple’s 11-year relationship ended in 2015 after Addams found credit card statements for budget hotels and later a secret folder of prostitutes she claims her husband had slept with.
She also alleged her had spent thousands of pounds of her money on the women.
She had been previously convicted of harassment in July 2016 and given a restraining order, but continued to bombard Mr Mylcrist with emails and text messages.
In two months alone she sent him 1,500 texts, questioning him about his “perverted” behaviour.
She also sent an “aroused” naked photograph of Mr Mylchrist to one of his employees at his offices in Tankerton Road, Tankerton.
Addams told the court she had found the picture on his laptop within a folder she claimed contained images of 200 prostitutes he had slept with.
Addams is likely to carry out her unpaid work in a charity shop. Miss Addams is likely to be working in a local charity shop. For the last four years she has been a volunteer at Crisis at Christmas.
Speaking afterwards, she said: "I never did deny any of it. I wanted people to know what he had done. His actions have wrecked lives.
"I’m relieved that I’ve now become disassociated with him and that I've put it all behind me now."
