UK: Former nurse sentenced for cyber stalking campaign

A 27-year-old who carried out a campaign of harassment against a number of women has been sentenced to 22 months in prison, made the subject of a non-harassment order and placed on the sex offenders register.

Adele Rennie, a former nurse, has admitted using a host of invented aliases to carry out a series of stalking and sexual offences, a breach of the data protection act and attempting to pervert the course of justice.


She also accessed the medical records of one of her victims in an attempt to obtain further details.

The 27-year-old, who worked as a nurse at Crosshouse Hospital in Kilmarnock, pursued relationships with ten women through social media sites, dating websites and apps over a four-year period.

One of the disturbing aspects to the case was that Rennie allegedly duped the women into sending explicit photographs in an attempt to ‘harm and humiliate’ them.
