A 22-year-old Ex-Lincoln student jailed over ‘vile’ threats to lecturers
A former Lincoln College student appeared at Lincoln Crown Court today over threats made against lectures at Lincoln College.
Phoebe Adlard, 22 was given a restraining order in March 2020 for her behaviour towards Lincoln College lectures. The order restrained her from contacting Lincoln College, but this year in July she broke that order by sending vile threats via email and on social media.
The former equestrian student was arrest and accused of sending vile threats to two of her former lectures, which included calling them Nazis.
Phoebe Adlard appeared at Lincoln Crown Court where she admitted a string of offences including breaching the restraining order and harassment.
Noel Philo, prosecuting, told the court Adlard broke the restraining order in July this year in a series of electronic communications via email and on social media.
The messages included referring to the two female lecturers as ‘Nazis’ and making threats to property and horses.
Mr Philo said: “The messages went on and on causing considerable alarm to both of the ladies concerned.”
Mr Philo added: “Those threats put them in fear of their lives.”
Following her arrest Phoebe Adlard admitted two offences of common assault on an emergency worker and damaging her police cell.
Lincoln Crown Court heard how Phoebe Adlard continued her campaign against staff at Lincoln College just a month after she was found with a small knife at the offices of the probation service in Union Street, Grantham.
A former Lincoln College student who made ‘vile’ threats to two of her former lecturers has been jailed for 14 months.
Mr Philo told the court officers were called to the building after Adlard became upset and began throwing leaflets on the floor.
The Court also heard that when she was asked to leave, she replied: “If I leave I’m going to stab someone.”
Adlard formerly of Juniper Close, Leasingham, scratched a Swastika into the plastic cover of the door and cracked the lower panel.
When the police arrived, Adlard warned them not to touch her or she would spit at them. When she was removed from the building, a small steak knife fell to the floor which was concealed in her clothing.
She pleaded guilty to offences of criminal damage, possessing a bladed article and a public order offence at Grantham probation office on June 13.
She also admitted offences of harassment, breaching a restraining order, criminal damage to a police cell and common assault on two emergency workers in July this year.
Phoebe Adlard was jailed for 14 months.
