Halesowen mum in court over threatening messages

First published in News

AN angry Halesowen mother-of-four, who sent a string of threatening messages to another woman, has admitted harassment.

Kim Marsden sent the messages via her victim’s mother to vent her anger and upset over something that had happened to a relation.

The 30-year-old, who was concerned about family problems, has been ordered to carry out 100 hours unpaid work in the community by Wolverhampton Crown Court.

Judge Amjad Nawaz said Marsden sent the messages over a three day period to the woman's mother knowing they would be passed on and it was clear she wanted to "cause great upset."

He added: "You must have realised the harm you caused. What you did was extremely foolish."

Marsden, of Severn Road, Colley Gate, was also given a restraining order forbidding her from having any contact with the other family.

Graeme Simpson, defending, said it was a "venting of emotional anger and upset" because of what had happened to her relation.

Robert Cowley, prosecuting, said the other woman feared Marsden was capable of carrying out her threats.
