Rather than shed a few tears and move on, a 20-year-old jilted boyfriend, Grant Carruthers, decided to take revenge on the ex-girlfriend for dumping him.
And what did he do? He secretly logged into the girl’s parents’ Amazon Prime account and racked up a massive bill of £4,000 in their name.
Grant was furious when girlfriend Sophie Jackson abruptly ended what he thought was a long-term relationship.
To get back at her, he threatened to harm her pet dog, then bombarded her with phone calls before smashing a window at her parents’ home.
Instead of jailing Grant, a court has imposed a 200 hours of upaid work and a 12-month community order which requires him to attend alcohol awareness sessions.
A restraining order was imposed which prevents Grant from contacting Miss Jackson or her parents for three years.
DailyMail UK quotes the judge was quoted as saying:said: “I am not going to deprive you of your liberty.
“It seems that this was a singular episode in your life when, as an immature young man, you couldn’t come to terms with a relationship that had ended”
