A Perth woman has admitted harassing a solicitor over a near two-year period by following and making threats towards her.
Pamela Wheeler, 48, pleaded guilty to committing offences between April 16 2013 and January 31 2015 at various locations, including Rosslyn House, Glasgow Road, Vasart Court, St Catherine’s Retail Park and Tay Street, Perth, which caused Jennifer Douglas fear or alarm.
The accused, by various means, persistently contacted and followed Ms Douglas, issued threats and made abusive comments.
From April 16 2013, Wheeler, of Vasart Court, persistently contacted Ms Douglas by social media and made abusive and threatening comments.
She also persistently contacted Ms Douglas’s former place of work, then at Miller Hendry solicitors, Perth, and demanded to speak to her.
Wheeler admitted that on April 7 2014, and thereafter, she persistently contacted the woman on social media and pretended to be a person called Rita Doig, and made threatening and abusive comments.
Wheeler also pleaded guilty that, on January 31 2015, she entered an address at Rosslyn House, Perth, uninvited and walked through the house, with the intention to upset, alarm and intimidate Ms Douglas.
By doing so Wheeler placed the woman in a state of fear and alarm and caused her unnecessary upset and distress.
Sheriff William Wood heard that the accused has health issues that appear to be caused by the breakdown of her marriage, and has had three spells in Murray Royal Hospital as an in-patient.
Sentence was deferred until February 10 for reports.
