Karen Green has avoided prison after carrying out a campaign of harassment against her ex’s new lover
A jealous woman who hurled urine over her ex’s new girlfriend and smeared her car with dog faeces has avoided a jail term.
Karen Green reacted after her former lesbian lover, who lived in the same street as her, found a new partner.
The 58-year-old, of Clacton-on-Sea, Essex, threw urine at the woman and smeared dog excrement on her car.
Despite admitting possession of a knife and harassment at Colchester Magistrates’ Court, she was freed on a suspended sentence.
The court had heard Green had stayed good friends with her former lover but became aggressive after the new woman came to stay.
She accused the couple of trying to make her jealous and kneeled by the side of their car, threatening to slash their tyres with a knife.
The abuse turned physical and she began throwing oranges at her ex’s new girlfriend – before hitting her round the head.
Philip Pearson, prosecuting, said: ‘She found excrement had been thrown onto her car.
‘She had it cleaned and returned later and then mud was thrown on the newly cleaned car. She then recalls urine being thrown at her.’
Green also subjected the pair to a string of verbal attacks and left a threatening note in her car while it was parked outside their house for three days.
Colchester Magistrates Court heard Green had made her victims’ lives a misery
Both victims have reported suffering from stress as a result of the incidents.
Peter Young, mitigating for Green, said she had been provoked by the victims at times during the eight-month long harassment campaign.
As well as a 12-week sentence, suspended for 12 months, and a year-long restraining order was also imposed.
