Female lout without ticket told conductor ‘I’m going to track you down on Facebook and kill you’

A lout was forced to pay damages to a rail driver after threatening to track her down on Facebook and kill her when she was accused of evading fares on a train.

Part-time DJ Jade Leech, 28, left driver Elle Stacie with no choice but to hide in the driver’s cabin in fear for her life after suffering terrifying abuse.

Leech was simply asked to show a ticket, but he reacted vilely when he told Miss Stacie that he had made a mental note of the driver’s name for his staff name tag.

The rude woman proceeded to yell ‘I will stab you, I will kill you. I’m going to track you down on Facebook and kill you.

Miss Stacie said after the terrifying event that she had only been trying to do her job but was left “physically shaking after the confrontation.”

“I was so afraid for my safety that I locked myself in the taxi because I wasn’t sure if he would carry out the threat he had made to me,” she said.

“I went back to my duties the next day and did my best to put this out of my mind, but I was left emotionally drained. I just wanted to go home and curl up.

At Sefton Magistrates’ Court, Leech, from Woolton, Liverpool, admitted threatening behavior and was ordered to pay Miss Stacie £250 in compensation.

The abusive train passenger was also sentenced to 16 weeks in prison suspended for 12 months with the requirement that she participate in 20 days of rehabilitation activity with the probation service.

Prosecutor Callum Bryce told the court that Leech was a passenger on a train leaving Liverpool around 1:50pm on January 7 when Miss Stacie approached her to ask for her ticket.

He said that Miss Stacie had recognized the defendant as she had previously dealt with her.

He did not have a ticket to travel on the train. She asked to see her ticket and said, ‘I’m on the phone, come back,’ Bryce said.

Miss Stacie said that she needed to see the ticket and then said, “You’ve done this before.”

The defendant then said, “I remember you, you’ve kicked me out before.” The driver explained that he needed to see the ticket, but the defendant started yelling at him, saying “You’re a fucking bitch”, “I’ll stab you” and “I’ll kill you”. .

The prosecutor went on to describe how Leech insisted on asking her name before reading her name tag, Elle Stacie.

He added: “She said, ‘I’m going to track you down on Facebook and kill you, that’s a dumb fucking name.'”

He was worried too. Miss Stacie was really afraid of being stabbed. Fear was also caused to the train driver. This happened on a moving train that people can’t get out of.’

Leech had 59 prior offenses on his record, including shoplifting, criminal damage, fighting and public order offenses, as well as threatening someone with a blade.

In mitigating circumstances, defense attorney Martin Saxon said Leech suffers from a personality and anxiety disorder and had been on the phone with the doctor at the time the driver spoke to her.

“He was in a heightened emotional state and just blew up,” the attorney said.

“It was a very impulsive way he acted on the train. Her mother was also very ill because she had been diagnosed with cancer. Everything came crashing down on her that day.

In sentencing Leech, District Judge Paul Healey told him: ‘It’s serious business when there are people on the train and the staff are doing their jobs to check tickets.

“It is a closed environment and it was totally unacceptable that they were threatened with violence. It is frightening for them and disturbing for other passengers in the area.

He has a long history of crimes of this type and has been in prison for similar conduct. He has extensive criminal convictions.

‘I understand that at the time you were struggling to cope with the difficult news about your mother’s health. I sympathize with that. It’s something we all have to go through and it’s hard.

But you have a significant history of disorder and threats of violence and I have to consider giving you an immediate jail sentence.

The judge proceeded to tell the court that he was “encouraged” by the parole report showing that Leech had taken steps to address his behavior.

He added: ‘He has personality problems, he has mental health problems and he is cooperating with mental health services.

You have taken steps to avoid similar situations, especially on trains.

The judge said he wanted to review her case in November to make sure she was cooperating with probation and mental health services to address her issues, otherwise she risked being sent to prison.

“If you commit any other crime in the next 12 months, you will almost inevitably go to prison,” he said.
