In July 2019 you told the victim that he had raped you and repeatedly demanded money from him in order to keep quiet and not report it to the police. The blackmail included the threat to report the matter to the police in respect of serious sexual offence. In terms of the harm that was caused I also think that was high. The impact on the victim has been quite severe, he had to go through a police investigation and is suffering ongoing distress as a result of your conduct. “Blackmail is always a serious matter and immediate terms of custody are usually to be anticipated. You included others in your plan to blackmail your victim. You told his family members about your allegation and I look at the number of messages and the threats and the length of time those threats were made. In your favour is the fact that this was not sophisticated. You have no previous convictions.

.” Prosecutor Caroline Harris said: “The victim changed his mobile telephone number to stop the contact. On 3rd August 2019 the victim confided in a colleague who suggested that he report the matter to the police. On 5th August the defendant reported to the police that she had been raped by the victim and the decision was taken by the police to investigate the rape allegation first before the blackmail allegation. The defendant was interviewed on the 5th of January and she accepted that the telephone number was hers and said she wasn’t responsible for sending all the messages and blamed her friend. She said she would not have asked victim for his bike or phone as they would have meant a lot to him. "She accepted taking money from him, around £60 to £100 and when a higher figure was put to her she accepted that this was possible to.” In a statement, her victim said: “When all this first happened and Chelsea was blackmailing me I felt trapped. I was scared and this caused me anxiety. As it went on and it was reported to the police I became depressed. I had sleepless nights. “Even though I hadn’t done anything wrong all I could think was that I would be arrested because of her lies. Her behaviour has had an impact on my social life. I had incidents when I was out at my local pub where random people would come up to me and call me a rapist. I had to see my GP to help me cope. I was prescribed anti-depressants.” READ NEXT: Get regular updates with our daily court and crime newsletter Three people arrested after Citroen and BMW 'stolen' from Uttoxeter driveway Free hot meals for schoolchildren to help Staffordshire families over Christmas Teen, 18, arrested on suspicion of terrorism offences in Walsall Thugs who stamped on schoolboy and hit woman with vodka bottle slammed for random attacks Shocking pictures show damage caused after Bloxwich home ravaged by flames
