Stalker jailed for posting intimate photos of his ex-partner
Webb posted intimate photos of his ex-girlfriend on a swinger’s site after she dumped him
A jealous bodyguard who posted intimate photos of his ex-girlfriend on a swinger’s website after she left him has been jailed.
Anthony Webb, 44, has subjected Denise Bolt to months of harassment, including installing tracking devices on her new boyfriend’s car.
He sent Whatsapp messages promising to ‘hospitalize anyone who sniffs’, even photographing her with her new partner Timothy Morffew as they left a hotel.
Webb, who claims to keep “high profile customers” safe, has denied harassing and holding a gun.
But he was found guilty by a jury at Ipswich Crown Court in February and jailed for four years on Tuesday after carrying a stun gun disguised as a cell phone.
He also received a five-year restraining order prohibiting him from contacting the mother of two, Miss Bolt or Mr. Morffew.
The court heard how Webb, from Great Tey in Essex, was dumped by Miss Bolt on New Years Day 2015, but continued to contact over the next five months and shared photos of her on the site Web Fab Swingers.
Although the couple created a Fab Swingers profile when they were together in 2011, they rarely used it and Webb used Miss Bolt’s details to reactivate it after their split.
She only found out when a stranger showed her the intimate photos of Bannatyne’s Health Club in Colchester, Essex, where she worked.
A horrified Miss Bolt recognized them as having been taken years ago while the couple were on an escapade in London.
Testifying behind a screen, she told the court that the stranger showed her the photos while she was showing him around the gym.
“I got to work and my receptionist said, ‘You have someone who would like to take the gym tour.’
“I sat down and talked to him and started showing him around.
“We got to the locker room and he was on the phone, which I found a bit rude, and when I asked him if everything was okay, he showed me pictures of me.
“They were sexual.
“I asked him, ‘How did you get this? And he said, “You didn’t send them to me?”
“I said, ‘It wasn’t me. I do not know who you are “.
Miss Bolt, from Colchester, Essex, said she was ashamed and terrified of what Webb might do.
A stranger approached Miss Bolt at the health club, where she was shown intimate photos that Webb posted online after installing a tracking device on her boyfriend’s car.
The couple had been living together since 2011, when they had CCTV cameras inside their home and took around 120 photos of them over three days.
The court heard how Webb set up the cameras to monitor her, using a burglary as an excuse.
He also installed tracking devices on his car which police found in the engine compartment after they were connected to the car’s battery.
The court heard how Webb’s two threatening Whatsapp messages left Miss Bolt and Mr. Morffew living in fear.
Miss Webb told the court: “He affected me in every way. I always looked at two cars in front and two behind when driving to see patterns or to see if I recognized license plates.
Police also found a stun gun in a closet after Webb was charged with criminal harassment offenses.
Webb claims he had no intention of using it because he did not have a battery or charger.
In addition to being banned from contacting the couple, Webb is also not to have contact with two other women from Miss Bolt’s family.
