A teenager from Telford has admitted sending a malicious message on social media.

Ashley Pritchard sent a malicious Facebook message

Ashley Pritchard pleaded guilty to posting a Facebook message in which she identified three women who were assisting police in a sex offence investigation.

The message, sent in April last year, was said to contain threats with intent to cause the victims distress and alarm.

Eighteen-year-old Pritchard had denied three offences involving allegations of taking or attempting to take revenge in relation to the three women.

At Shrewsbury Crown Court yesterday, Mr Trevor Meegan, prosecuting, said that Pritchard’s pleas were accepted and the prosecution would not be seeking a trial on the not guilty charges.

Sentencing of Pritchard, of Daily Bank Drive, St George’s, was adjourned for reports by the probation service until March 19.

She was allowed bail.
