Sally Treherne, 54, of Wilton Avenue, Eastbourne, pleaded guilty to sending an electronic message that was grossly offensive or of an indecent, obscene or menacing character according to a court document.
The offence took place at Eastbourne on December 30 last year. The court sentenced her to three months in prison, suspended for one year. The court also made a community order with an alcohol treatment requirement and a requirement of 120 hours of unpaid work. Magistrates said the reason for the sentence was due to the ‘serious nature of the threats’. She was ordered to pay £400 in prosecution costs.
