A WOMAN burst into tears after being jailed for messaging her ex-boyfriend's dog on Facebook.

Paula Higham, 38, appeared at Liverpool Crown Court after contacting her ex, breaching a non-molestation order imposed in August 2021.

The order prevented her from contacting her ex Mark Davies for one year.

But Higham contacted her former partner's dog on Facebook, an act which was deemed to have breached her order.

Higham is also said to have issued threats directly towards her ex-partner, reports the Daily Star.

And the 38-year-old issued threats against Davies' mum, calling her “rough” and adding “she will be looking worse soon”.

In August 2021, recorder Tim Harrington handed Higham a one-year imprisonment suspended for 18 months, which she was in "persistent breach" of after sending a series of "deeply unpleasant" messages.

With 13 emails sent from two different accounts just a week after the non-molestation order took effect, Higham had also messaged a Facebook account set up for Davies' dog.

One abusive note read: "What's happened to your mum? She's looking very rough. She will be looking worse soon."

Another message added: "Enjoy your weekend. I've posted your name and address over the internet, rapist."

Mr Davies also recorded eight phone calls he had received from the defendant via a withheld number.

At 2am on another date, she accused him of raping her and said: "Now you really are f***ed. You just went viral by the way."

On September 25, at around 4.30pm, Higham phoned saying "the rapist has got nothing to say has he?".

She then called him a "f***ing freak" and added: "I'm going to kill you, I'm going to kill you."

Zara Baqri, prosecuting, said that Higham was an "increased risk" to probation staff due to her alcohol abuse, and had acted aggressively toward staff.

Oliver Saddington, defending, said: "She apologises through me for these breaches. Truth be told, she is still feeling scared and suffers with her mental health today."

Recorder Eric Lamb, in sentencing, activated the 12 month suspended sentence but reduced it to eight, where during sentencing Higham sobbed and asked the judge: "Are you saying I am going to lose my house?".
