Spate of nuisance calls made to police by mum
A MUM bombarded police with emails and calls after becoming angry because she believed she was a victim of a miscarriage of justice, a court heard.
Between June and September of this year, Susannah Grevett defied a restraining order banning her from contacting Hampshire police except in an emergency. She rang or emailed the police, sometimes using abusive language, more than 90 times.
Southampton Crown Court was told how the 43-year-old had begun her nuisance behaviour following her conviction for an assault, which she viewed as a miscarriage of justice.
During one call she said: “You are called the filth for good reason. We don’t like them because they are scum.
“What we don’t like is the filth.”
Grevett, of Regents Court, Southampton, pleaded guilty to breaching her restraining orders, which also includes contacting her former partner, Martin Grevett.
The court heard that she had 16 convictions for 43 offences, which include harassment and public order offences.
But the court heard how before 2011 Grevett had no convictions.
Richard Griffiths, defending, said her spate of nuisance behaviour followed her conviction for assault.
He said: “She has an overwhelming sense that she is a victim of a miscarriage of justice and sees herself as a victim rather than a defendant.”
Despite her repeated breaches, Judge Henry said he would give her one more chance by handing her a 12-month community supervision order.
He said: “I hope you can put this behaviour behind you and I really don’t want to see you coming back here again.”
