I see that you’ve been waiting a while for this. I will try to help.
I’m surprised that this is actually going as far as the magistrates court but that would depend on the number of telephone calls and whether there have been any other allegations. Usually, this is dealt with by way of a simple warning letter or a formal caution.
The definitive sentencing guidelines are here. Please turn to page 70
If you look at table A towards the top of the page and then aggravating factors at the bottom of the page in table B, and then refer backup to the Starting Point and Range in table A, the sentencing range goes from a fine to community order.
From what you have said, I think it’s likely that you will get a fine and perhaps a restraining order to have no further contact. If you do have further contact, then it’s much more serious.
A band C fine is an amount of money between 125% and 175% of relavent weekly income.
Does that answer the question? Can I answer any specific points arising from this?
You may get the impression the thread closes after rating, but it does not, it remains open and we can still exchange any emails if something needs clarification.
