Man To Be Sentenced For Stalking Star

A stalker from Medway who sent a series of letters to presenter Sara Cox will be sentenced later for harassing her and for hoarding indecent images of children.

Anthony Collins, 49, of Afghan Road, Chatham pleaded guilty on February 11 to harassment relating to notes posted to the 42-year-old.

Collins sent the star letters handwritten in felt-tip pen along with a printed photo of Cox, telling her he was lonely that his friends were dead, that he suffered from bipolar disorder and that his brother had drowned in a river.

In addition to admitting harassment, Collins pleaded guilty to two counts of possessing indecent images and two counts of making indecent images of children.

Collins will be sentenced by Judge Martin Joy at Maidstone Crown Court.
