bail in relation to this charge. The second two charges related to a second victim. He posted naked photos of her on Facebook and also threatened to damage her
mother's car. The Court set a start point of six months' imprisonment on the harmful digital communications charge, with two-month uplifts on each of the

in favour of the first victim.
