A MAN has been sentenced for harassment after sending close to 400 unwanted text messages to his ex-partner.
Between May 25 and June 11 this year Scott Neale-Glinn, aged 37, of Royal Crescent, sent a total of 385 text messages to Samantha Neale-Glinn.
A statement from Ms Neale-Glinn detailed how her former partner became obsessive when she joined the police force in 2008, leading the 13-year relationship to end a few years later in December 2013.
But, against her wishes, Neale-Glinn continued to contact his ex, causing her to feel constantly ‘on edge’.
Mitigating Nigel Yeo highlighted that the messages were ‘not abusive’, and noted Neale-Glinn has made no attempt to contact his ex since the end of July this year.

But Ms Neale-Glinn said: “I don’t feel safe, or that anything can be done to safeguard me from Scott. I feel on edge all the time.”
Neale-Glinn was given a restraining order preventing him from contacting Ms Neale-Glinn or visiting her home address in the future.

Mr Yeo said: “These were not abusive text messages, they were not threatening messages.
“They were soppy text messages if you like.”
Neale-Glinn appeared at North Somerset Courthouse on Thursday where he pleaded guilty to harassment without violence.
He was given a 12-month suspended sentence, ordered to pay £85 cost and an £80 victim surcharge.
