A dangerous Doncaster man bombarded his victim with calls, messages and threats and sent explicit pictures of her to her family in a ‘cruel and callous’ campaign of abuse.

In the space of a month, Sam Hone, 29, called his victim over 100 times using a private number, bombarded her with texts and Snapchat messages, and made threats to harm her and her children.

South Yorkshire Police say Hone also tried to blackmail his victim into speaking with him by distributing explicit images of her to her family members without her consent.

He also made 15 hoax calls to the police, causing them to go to her address.

Hone was arrested on Thursday, September 16 and charged with domestic abuse offences. He was found guilty of breach of restraining order and harassment at Sheffield Crown Court on Sunday, December 12.

Hone, formerly of Lime Tree Avenue in Doncaster, has been jailed for two years.

Speaking after his sentencing, Police’s PC Gordon Doudie said: “I am pleased that Hone has been handed the custodial sentence he rightly deserves.

“His cruel and callous actions caused his victim to suffer for weeks. He showed no empathy for his victim or her loved ones.

“I would like to thank her for her bravery coming forward and reporting what happened to us. It is thanks to her that a dangerous individual is now behind bars where he belongs.

“I am so pleased that she can now enjoy a peaceful Christmas with her family in the knowledge he has been put away. Whilst the sentence can never undo Hone’s atrocious actions, I hope it can help provide his victim with the first steps towards healing.

“If you or a loved one has been affected by domestic abuse, please know that it is not your fault. It is the offender who is to blame.

“Please know that we are here, we will listen to you and we will do all we can to support you, and bring offenders to justice.

“Report to us by calling 101, 999 in an emergency or report online.”
