Cumbrian stalker left nurse terrified

A stalker who left a district nurse terrified has been remanded in custody until he is sentenced next month.

Michael John Paley admitted ignoring the terms of his conditional bail by uploading comments to his website.

Earlier this month the 49-year-old was found guilty of stalking nurse Sally Carter after she reported him to social services over an allegation that was found not to be substantiated.

Paley said in his defence that he had not been stalking, spying or looking through her windows, but had simply been walking past her house on the occasions he was spotted. This was said to be a total fabrication by the magistrates who found him guilty.

The trial on May 14 heard how nurses looking after his sick mother could only attend Paley’s address in Salthouse Road, Millom, in pairs as his inappropriate dress sense and manner left them “unnerved”.

Paley will be sentenced at Furness Magistrates’ Court on June 9.

CCTV surveillance - unwelcome intrusion or crime deterrent?

I used to hate the idea. Now I feel at risk without them

Intrusion. There are too many people watching us and collecting personal data

They can only deter when monitored 24/7 - which is doubtful
