Carlisle man scared woman with offensive texts

A man from Carlisle has admitted scaring a woman by sending her a year-long series of offensive text messages and making threatening phone calls to her.

Stephen Bell, 36, pleaded guilty at the city's Crown Court to putting her in fear of violence or harassment by his behaviour between June 1, 2011 and July 4 this year. He also admitted a charge of sexually assaulting a different woman.

Bell, who has a house in Gretna as well as an address in Oaklands Drive, Upperby, Carlisle, was remanded in custody for background reports and will be sentenced on December 19.

Judge Paul Batty QC described it as “a difficult case”.

He told Bell: “The court wants to do the best it can for you, but clearly there are other issues to be considered as far as what is best for the community.”
