Katie Value escaped from jail after being sentenced for violating a restraining order by sending abusive messages to her ex-husband about his fiancée.
The TV persona was handed an 18-month neighborhood order to do 170 hours of unpaid work after showing in Louis Crown Courtroom for sentencing Friday.
A choose beforehand warned her she was “in danger of going to jail” after she admitted to texting her ex-fiancé Kieran Hailer calling fiancée Michelle Bentico a “dirty whore”, a “gutter slag” and a “piece of shit”.
She was banned from contacting Michelle immediately or not directly in 2019, underneath restrictive provisions for 5 years.
Katie had beforehand been fined £415 for making a foul ‘offensive speech’ to Michelle throughout a category on a faculty playground.
Throughout Friday’s ruling, Decide Stephen Mooney advised Katie: “In my opinion, this crime was committed out of anger.
“The words you used were extremely offensive and seditious, so the violation cannot be considered minor.
“In my opinion, balancing aggravating and mitigating factors, the appropriate sentence is a mid-level societal system.”
She was also ordered to pay £1,500 in court costs.
The court heard that her letter to Kieran Hailer may have been prompted by Michelle Pentecost’s Instagram post, which she denies was targeting Katie.
Katie’s message read: “Tell the sex whore, you shit, your girlfriend not to start with me.
“She has a restraining order, so she shouldn’t try to antagonize me because she broke and I’m sure she doesn’t want people to know that she was having an affair with you behind my back. That’s rock bottom malice.”
The court heard that the crime was committed due to Katie’s use of the words “I tell you,” which was an indirect attempt to communicate with Michelle.
In a victim impact statement read out in court, Michelle said the violation had a “devastating effect” on her mental health.
She said, “The impact of what Katie did is so disturbing, I feel threatened and intimidated.
“I feel frustrated and not wanting to go out. The language used made me feel scared. I felt like it was an attack on me.
“The consequences I feel are going to attack me. I felt the restraining order would make me feel safe but by someone breaking it made me feel very weak.”
Katie showed no emotion when announcing the verdict but smiled a short smile as she left the dock, the Palestinian News Agency reported.
She was accompanied by her boyfriend, Carl Woods, during her court appearance.
