Police have released a picture of a pensioner issued with an indefinite Criminal Behaviour Order (CBO) for harassing her neighbours and being a nuisance.

Janette Moffat, 66, of John Gold Avenue, Newark, was given the order at Nottingham Magistrates’ Court following a campaign of harassment towards her neighbours, repeatedly causing nuisance within the wider community and incidents of making false and malicious reports to the police and district council about a number of individuals.

The application to the court also evidenced Moffat’s history of verbal abusive behaviour towards local young people.

The order includes ten conditions relating to harassing neighbours.

Moffat has been ordered not to: cause any nuisance or annoyance to any person living at or visiting John Gold Avenue and Hercules Drive; enter Barnby Road Academy; enter Barnby Road Play Area; make malicious complaints to any agency including Newark and Sherwood District Council and/or the police; be verbally abusive to any young person under 18 years or use any electronic device to film, record or photograph any person when on their private property.

Despite efforts to support Moffat and deter anti-social behaviour, the district council she continued in a campaign of harassment, causing considerable distress to those around her.

It said this could not be allowed to continue and therefore legal action had to be taken by the district council and Newark Police to ensure the safety and wellbeing of the residents affected.

Breaches of the order could lead to a prison sentence.
