Emily-Jo Banks, 23, has been sentenced to jail in a bizarre case where she framed a man for harassing her with abusive texts for months – texts that the police confirmed that she sent from August to September 2015.
Banks said that the man followed her home, spied on her, and even attacked her. Police pursued the man but noticed something curious: the texts would stop whenever they were at Banks’ house and then resume once they left. Other texts raised conflicts in how the man could have viewed certain actions. Police found that Banks logged into the man’s social media profiles and was sending herself threatening messages. Her phone was linked to the email used for the texts.
