Lowestoft man Daniel Cornell jailed after harassing woman with messages and following her
A Lowestoft man who harassed a woman by sending her messages and going to her home has been jailed for 10 weeks.
Daniel Cornell, of Edinburgh Road, was arrested on suspicion of stalking on August 19 and was subsequently charged with harassment.
The 44 year old appeared at Norwich Magistrates' Court on Friday, where he admitted continually contacting his victim by phone and on social media.
He also attended her home address and on one occasion followed her.
Cornell was also handed a two year restraining order and ordered to pay a £128 victim surcharge.
Speaking after the sentencing, Detective Constable Chris Thompson said: "Daniel Cornell’s behaviour over those weeks was unacceptable and caused considerable distress to the victim.
"We take this type of offence very seriously and thankfully Cornell’s offences were brought to our attention. I would urge anyone else experiencing this or any form of domestic violence to come forward.
"We can then do everything possible to ensure their safety and prosecute those responsible.”
