Man accused of stalking Carlisle woman he met on Facebook

A man has appeared in court accused of stalking a Carlisle woman he befriended through Facebook.

Gavin Stevenson is said to have sent more than 700 unwanted texts to Kirsty Jackson.

He is also alleged to have made a series of phone calls and threats – some in person.

Stevenson, 28, formerly of Dalbeattie Road in Dumfries, appeared before Carlisle Magistrates’ Court charged with pursuing a course of harassment that put the victim in fear of violence and making threats to damage property.

Stevenson denies the offences, which the court heard took place between October last year and February 13.

The magistrates decided that the matter was so serious it needed to be dealt with at Carlisle Crown Court. The case was adjourned for committal papers to be prepared.

Stevenson was remanded in custody until his next hearing, which will take place via video link on February 23.

Ages ago. I like to be organised.

Don't know. I leave it all to the wife.
