Jilted boyfriend bombarded ex with 2,000 calls a week

August 24, 2010 | by | 15 Comments

A jilted boyfriend repeatedly phoned his ex-girlfriend begging to be taken back – more than 2,000 times in a WEEK, a court heard.

Relentless Jason Annis, 27, bombarded his former lover with hundreds of calls and text messages after she dumped him for someone else.

During one eight-day period he then called her 1,046 times and sent more than 630 texts.

He also sent her more than 350 messages on Facebook.

They ranged from demanding to be taken back, questions about the couple’s 10-month-old baby and threats of suicide.

The victim went to complain to police but while she was giving a statement he rang her 56 TIMES.

Annis, of Liskeard, Cornwall, pleaded guilty to harassment between June 18 and July 8 this year at Plymouth Magistrates Court.

He was given an 18-month community order, ordered to pay £85 costs and given a two-year restraining order to keep more than 100 metres from his victim.

District Judge Paul Farmer said the case was ”unique” because of the sheer number of calls and text messages.

He said: ”I have seen many cases of this nature before me but I cannot believe I have seen someone receive this amount of calls and texts.

”The sheer volume would cause anyone concern, quite frankly, about the state of your mind. In your relationship, there are clearly issues. You need help.”

The court heard Annis and the unnamed woman had a child together but their short-lived relationship broke down at the end of 2008.

They got back together again but had a fresh break-up and it was then that he started to harass his victim.

Stephen Walker, defending, said Annis had ”deep-seated problems” and asked him to consider a rehabilitation programme.

Annis was also ordered to attend a domestic abuse programme.

    You can't block a number from a cell phone.

    Phones with Android can block individual numbers. Also, many network operators offer this as a service to protect customers against harassment. However, determined harassers will simply keep switching numbers or use payphones.

    Andy, If you have a cell phone purchased within the last 5 years you have the ability to not have the call ring through. My motorola does this easily with t-mobile as a provider.

    A good alternative would be to set it to forward to google voice where you have all kinds of options to deal with scumbags like this.

  9. First, engage with your friends and family. Let them support you to mend a broken heart. But, don’t bore them with your troubles. Instead, try to have fun with the people you care about.

    Since when do Facebook messages constitute a "call"? 😛 This is a particularly elongated week, too. Something tells me that they wanted a nice, round number fo r the headline.

    It is wrong for him to harass her continously like this. But she may have ended the relationship in such a way that he was driven to such measures- poor guy just wanted to talk to her.
