Prison for man who harassed and slapped Grantham woman

A MAN who proposed through the Journal has been sentenced to 120 days’ imprisonment.

As reported in the Journal last month, Edward Mullenger was found guilty of common assault and the harassment of his ex-girlfriend, a Grantham woman. Mullenger, 54, of West End Close, Witchford, Ely, had refused to leave her alone, and on one occasion slapped her across the face.

In August, he proposed to her in the Journal, claimed in court to be after their split.

A judge sitting at Lincoln Magistrates’ Court on Monday sentenced him and also issued a restraining order to prevent any further contact.
