Internet troll convicted of stalking child abuse campaigner

AN INTERNET troll has been convicted of stalking a child abuse campaigner from Colchester.

An interim restraining order has also been granted banning the obsessed defendant from having any contact with the victim or her family.

Mother-o
f-eight Penny Mellor, 53, of Coven Wolverhampton, who is herself a child abuse campaigner, was convicted by a majority of ten to two of stalking Shy Keenan and harassment causing serious alarm and distress.

She sent hundreds of abusive tweets about Ms Keenan making several wild accusations.

Mellor is now banned from contacting Ms Keenan and her family and of posting anything about her, her family or her book Broken including on the internet.

Mellor has also been told she will have to pay a significant proportion of the costs which are already more than £16,000.

Judge David Turner QC will sentence at a later date after Mellor asked for time to get psychiatric tests on herself.

She also told the court she plans to appeal, following the verdict at Chelmsford Crown Court.

She was convicted following a six month campaign against Ms Keenan from October 2012 to March 2013.

A new stalking law came in at the start of 2013 and in the next three months she sent 239 tweets to or about Ms Keenan.

Unless she's another one playing the 'I've got issues' card, when she's actually just plain nasty?

It's normally The Court who asks for that. Not The Defendant. So she must have a tame Psychiatrist. Let's hope The Court has got one too.

It's actually a woman that was doing the trolling and abusing, Pedro.

Penny Mellor guilty of harassing campaigner Shy Keenan

A woman has been found guilty of stalking an anti-child abuse campaigner by "bombarding" her with hundreds of abusive messages on Twitter.
Shy Keenan, who founded the The Phoenix Chief Advocates Consultancy, received 415 tweets between October 2012 and March 2013.
Penelope Mellor, 52, of Coven Mill Close, Coven, Wolverhampton, was convicted of aggravated stalking at Chelmsford Crown Court.
She is due to be sentenced in April.
The prosecution said Mellor also sent material to Ms Keenan's associates and posted material online "which was considered unacceptable as criticism and personal in nature".
'Grudges'
Simon Newell, senior prosecutor for the Crown Prosecution Service, said Mellor sent publicly-visible comments which were "insulting and abusive" to Ms Keenan's Twitter account.

She also emailed Ms Keenan's book publisher and literary agent, and sent messages to The Sun newspaper, for which she wrote a regular column.
"Ms Keenan was concerned private information about her family was being put into the public domain by Ms Mellor and threatening their safety, in particular, that it might be used by other people with grudges against her," he said.
Despite being warned by police about her behaviour, Mr Newell said, Mellor continued to send emails and mount attacks via Twitter.



She also emailed Ms Keenan's book publisher and literary agent, and sent messages to The Sun newspaper, for which she wrote a regular column.


Which is just what a great many of the McCann-hating trolls.

I'm not sure if she will get away with playing the speshul ishoos card; I have a feeling she was jailed in the past for some bit of nastiness.

Care row 'injustice' criticised
THE GRANDMOTHER of a Sunderland girl hidden from police and social services today hit out at the jail sentence handed to a self-styled child welfare campaigner.
Penelope Mellor, 40, was jailed for two years for masterminding a plot to keep the nine-year-old girl amid fears she would be taken into care.
The child's grandmother, who has completed her jail term for her part in the plot, said: "This whole thing is an injustice. Locking her up isn't serving anything.
"People who abuse and kill children are walking the streets while she is behind bars away from babies.
"It will really hit her tonight. No-one can prepare you for the feeling when they first close the cell doors.
"She will be separated from the children she loves so dearly and for what? Trying to help others whose children are in trouble."
The Wearside family contacted Penny Mellor over the internet and at Mellor's behest, the child and its grandmother travelled to her home in Coven, near Wolverhampton.
Doctors had diagnosed fictitious illness syndrome - also known as Munchausen's Syndrome by Proxy, and the Sunderland family, who cannot be named for legal reasons, turned to Mellor as founder of campaign group, Families Against Munchausen's Syndrome.

Newcastle Crown Court heard that Mellor, a mother-of-eight, put the Sunderland family in touch with a Scotsman, Stuart Carnie, and the grandmother, the child and Carnie went on the run , the court was told .
The child's mother remained in Sunderland and claimed to be ignorant of what was going on, but a police surveillance operation revealed she made dozens of phone calls to Mellor and Carnie.
The three fugitives were at large for four weeks during which time they travelled to Ireland and finally Scotland, staying in caravan parks and cheap hotels along the way.
All the while, Mellor was directing operations from her home, the court heard.
The plot was eventually unravelled when undercover police followed the mother to Scotland after she set out from Sunderland to visit the child for its birthday.
The mother, father, grandmother and Carnie later admitted conspiracy to abduct a child between January 22 and February 28, 1999.
Mellor denied the same charge and was due to stand trial with the others last year, but could not do so because she was pregnant with her eighth child.
Her trial eventually took place in February, this year, and she was convicted by the jury.

Many of the anti-McCanns have come very close to similar prosecutions. When the libel trial is completed it is not beyond the realms of possibility that the McCanns will turn to deal with some of their own worst stalkers. Indeed I think there may be good reason to think that such prosecutions are already being considered by the authorities.

Me too, Lily. And I am sick to death of everything being dragged down to fit the whims of the stupid, the ignorant, the professional victims and the downright crazy.

It's way past time these hater trolls started taking responsibility for their words and deeds.

Clarkson Row: BBC Boss 'Sent Death Threats'
Tony Hall is under 24-hour guard after an allegedly threatening email was sent over his decision to axe Jeremy Clarkson.

Police are investigating allegations of threats to kill BBC director general Tony Hall, reportedly linked to his decision to drop presenter Jeremy Clarkson from Top Gear.

Lord Hall, 64, and his wife Cynthia have been under 24-hour guard at their Oxfordshire home since the threats were made on Wednesday, according to reports.

"Police in Westminster are investigating an allegation of threats to kill. The allegation was reported to police on Wednesday, 25 March.

"The threat was made by email.

"Enquiries continue to establish from where the email was sent, although the content of the message suggests from outside the UK."


More at link.

It is, IMO, well past time something was done about these nutjobs.

Internet troll who branded innocent people paedophiles and terrorists convicted of harassment
13:11, 31 March 2015 By Megan Adams
Fantasist Mark Fisher posted damaging comments online about people he held a grudge against, a court heard

An internet troll who branded innocent people paedophiles and terrorists has been convicted of harassment.

Fantasist Mark Fisher, 44, posted damaging comments online about people he held a grudge against.

One of his victims, a schoolteacher, has been unable to return to work because of the false allegations he made.

Some of his victims were wrongly linked to terrorism while Fisher accused another of causing the death of her husband - who was killed by a tragic accident.

Fisher was convicted after a trial of nine charges under the Malicious Communications Act of updating a website with grossly offensive articles and found guilty of a further charge of harassment.

He has mental health issues and was ordered to be detained in hospital for at least six months.

District Judge Michael Fanning told him: "You made harmful and utterly baseless allegations against a number of individuals.

"The allegations you made are a fantasy and in one instance you harmed the career of one of your victims."

The court heard that Fisher initially targeted one male victim with his lies.

Vanessa Jones, prosecuting, said: "Mr Fisher published on a couple of blog sites and Facebook some unpleasant information about this gentleman in relation to paedophile involvement."

Fisher put a picture of the victim on the social networking site with a link to a website linked to a known sex offender.

He also claimed on his page that he had details of 'suspected perverts' living in Huddersfield, West Yorks.

The victim told Fisher that the allegations were false and asked him to take the information off the site, which he refused to do.

Others who knew Fisher responded and told him they were not happy about him making these claims.

Mrs Jones said: "Four other people who knew Mr Fisher expressed their displeasure.

"They were added to the list that Mr Fisher felt were part of paedophile involvement.

"One of the complainants is a teacher and because of the information still on Facebook she can't work."

The court heard that Fisher, who had no previous convictions, suffers from mental illness.

Sentencing at Kirklees Magistrates' Court, Judge Fanning told him: "The allegations you made against them are a fantasy, linking them to paedophilia."

In making the hospital order, he added: "I am satisfied that you will continue to offend against these individuals or cast your net wider to involve those against whom you hold a grudge."

Fisher, of Lockwood, Huddersfield, will be kept in hospital for an initial six-month term. Upon his release he must comply with a restraining order, banning him from contacting six named victims.

He is also banned from posting any images or material about them online.

In addition he is prohibited from maintaining the material already published by him, meaning that any offensive posts will need to be taken down.

Yet another disgusting troll using 'mental health issues' as an excuse. Rolling Eyes
