An obsessed driving instructor who stalked his 17-year-old student has finally been jailed after he breached a restraining order and turned up at her home with Stanley blades.
Why was Graham Mansie Stalking 17-year-old Maisie Relph?
Graham Mansie, 53, stalked Maisie Relph, now 19, over a four-month period between July and October last year.
Mansie had created a TikTok account called ‘For Maisie’ which featured a red heart emoji and the bio ‘my favourite,’ asked her out for drinks and showered her with unwanted gifts, posing on WhatsApp as a male first-year student.
He lost hundreds of pounds trying to pay dark web fraudsters to hack her social accounts and has left the teenager with post traumatic stress.
Mansie, from Beckenham in south east London, pleaded guilty to one count of stalking and was given an eight-week jail term, suspended for a year, in May this year.
But just nine days later, the stalker ignored the terms of the restraining order, got in his car and drove 220 miles to her flat in York, the court heard today.
Mansie was finally jailed for 20 months at York Crown Court today.
