Harrasment by text?

I was round a mates house the other day, sipping a few beers, chewing the fat etc with a few of the lads.

Anyway, one lad was seeing this bird, albeit very briefly, because she was a bit of a stalker. You know the sort, presents on a 1st date, gets upset when you don't text her for a day, dumps you then asks you to reconsider a day later.

So....this lad decides to nip out for a quick ciggy and I get hold of his phone. A second or 2 later I've found this birds number and text her "I love you" Well, it would be rude not to wouldn't it!

He's unaware of the message I've sent and I'm quietly smirking to myself at a job well done, when his phone vibrates on the table.

Here was the response, or words very similar to it "can you delete my number, if you text me again I will go to the Police and file claims of harrasment."

Well, I'm busting a gut, and so is everyone else round the table and he's obviously going mental.

My point is.....can he get in trouble for harrasment when it was me that sent the message (not that I really care).

No idea if he can get in trouble and like you I couldn't care less.

I applaud your cuntish-ness though and wish Smudger was here to share the giggles......*sob*

In Scotland(if she reports it) he'd be looking at a sec 127 Comms act 2003 with a domestic aggravation , which means he'd have to appear in front of the sheriff the next(lawful) day.

Unless you burst to it, then of course the charge could be disproved.
Like most(95%) domestic incidents we deal with it would be another waste of time.

Edit to add,

As asked did you get her number or at least forward any nudey pics of her to your own phone???

Sorry. I was under the impression that dropping your mates in the shit is the reason we get out of bed in the morning?

Ah, Welsh people. You are so special, eh?

Unless somebody has you on camera texting, then you can deny all knowledge. It is not your fault your mate is a fucking pervert with child porn images on his laptop, is it?

I didn't get her number, there wasn't time. From what I read on his phone I wouldn't want it either!

She's a proper loony!

The divorce was nothing to do with your goat porn fetish then?

There will be some reason you did not trouser your mates mobby, stroll out the gaff then have some fun I am sure?

Care to share with the group?

Under the terms of the Protection From Harassment Act 1997, in order for an allegation of harassment to be upheld by the courts, it must derive from a course of conduct - that is to say, there must have been more than one incident which had the effect of causing the 'victim' to feel harassed.

Not only that, but the accused must have known or must have reasonably be expected to have known that his actions would have had the effect of harassing the 'victim'.

So no, legally, you are fine, I would think!

He'd have spotted it missing straight away. Sending the text without his knowledge was funnier.

It depends on went on before - As a standalone one off text,it means little - If he bombared her with texts and this is taken as a cummulation of them, then its possible she can take it further, depending on whats happened previously.

Thanks for that. Does that law apply in Wales where PrinceAlbert lives?
