A woman who subjected her victims to an appalling campaign of physical and emotional abuse has been given restraining orders and a suspended prison sentence.
Samantha Jane Crosby, 42, of Kelfield, Selby, assaulted a man, and shared a private sexual video of him without his consent.
She then pursued two women with connections to the man, physically assaulting one of them and harassing the other by sending her abusive messages.
Following an investigation by North Yorkshire, Crosby pleaded guilty to assaulting the man and disclosing a private sexual video of him without his consent, as well as assaulting one woman and harassing another.
At York Magistrates Court on Wednesday (24 November), Crosby’s behaviour was described as “appalling offending”, and she was sentenced to a 12-week prison sentence, suspended for 24 months.
The court also put in place three restraining orders, to protect all three victims, and requirements to abstain from alcohol, not to enter a named pub, carry out 60 hours of unpaid work, and undergo rehabilitation activity.
