A jilted lover harassed a former boyfriend and his partner by posting them a string of “unwanted sexual items”, a court heard.
Sophie Mussard also threatened the pair with letters and Facebook messages, saying she had a baseball bat “with his name on it” and she was going to “stab the pair of them”.
Northampton Magistrates’ Court heard Mussard, who has since been diagnosed with mental health issues, embarked on a 21-day spree of offences between April 9–30 this year. The 27-year-old, of Daimler Close, Rectory Farm, admitted two charges of harassment without violence.
The court heard the full list of items she sent to the couple included pleasure gel, flavoured condoms, a padded bra and erotic chocolate shapes.
Jerena Tomaszewska, prosecuting, said: “There has been a great deal of upset to the victims in this case.”
Stuart Jeffery, mitigating, said: “It has to be accepted that this was an irrational course of conduct.
“There was a breakdown, of sorts, and a loss of coherence and reasoning.”
Addressing the medical issues, District Judge Tim Daber said: “I don’t necessarily believe that was the only reason for the offences, but it is a powerful contributing factor.”
Mussard was sentenced to a 12-month community order, and must not now contact her victims .
She was also ordered to pay £75 compensation to them both.
