MAN GETS JAIL TERM FOR TEXTING EX-GIRLFRIEND 21, 801 TIMES

IS THAT HIM?

IS THAT HIM? 21, 801 TIMES!

PARIS – A 33-year-old French man has been sent to prison after phoning and texting his ex-girlfriend 21,807 times.
The man admitted that his behavior “was stupid”.
The unnamed defendant, who had made the calls to demand the woman thank him for fixing up their flat, was given a 10-month sentence and $1,300 fine.
He will also have to undergo psychiatric treatment and is barred from all contact with the woman he harassed.
The defendant had already accepted responsibility for the barrage of phone calls and text messages over a 10-month period, and had accepted an earlier demand to cease contact with his ex.


He had been hospitalized in the past for depression, and struggled to cope when his girlfriend broke off their relationship in 2011. He demanded compensation for work he had carried out in their apartment.
The calls averaged more than 73 per day.
“She tried to block her line, but he phoned her parents instead and her workplace,” said Manuella Spee, lawyer for the victim, a 32-year-old teacher.
It was only when she finally said thank you, during a meeting organized by a mediator, that the harassment stopped. He has not contacted her since.
“I tell myself, with hindsight, that it was stupid,” the man told the court.
