Former Chapel man jailed for harassing his ex-partner

A man who used to live in the High Peak has been jailed for six weeks for harassing his ex-partner by constantly calling and sending messages.

Jack Clegg-Walsh, who lived in Chapel-en-le-Frith at the time, pleaded not guilty to the offence of harassment during the case which was heard at a court in Manchester.

The 32-year-old constantly called the victim, sent her messages and posted threatening comments on social media aimed at the victim, her partner and friends during February 2020.

Clegg-Walsh, now of Arnsdale Road in Liverpool, was found guilty and sentenced to six weeks in prison at the hearing on Tuesday 20 April.

PC Annie Branson was one of the officers investigating the case.

She said: "This type of behaviour can have a considerable impact on someone’s life, with the unwanted contact causing victims a great deal of alarm or distress.

"We take reports of harassment seriously and we will do all we can to ensure offenders are brought to justice. This type of offence won’t be tolerated and we would encourage anyone who might be experiencing this to report it to us."
