PremierLeague-News.Com - Nicholas Melville harassed an ex-partner 'leaving them in fear' after returning from sex reassignment surgery abroad
PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! A former police officer who became "obsessively jealous" of their ex while they underwent sex reassignment surgery has been banned from seeing her for 10 years. Nicholas Melville, formerly Nicola, sought emotional support from his mum while transitioning from female to male, reports North Wales Live. When that failed, the ex- Merseyside Police officer "clutched" at then partner, Caroline Worsfold, bombarding her with messages. Melville - who lives in Rainford, St Helens - pleaded guilty to using controlling and coercive behaviour against Ms Worlsford, Caernarfon Crown Court heard. Melville would harass her with emails and even accuse her of sleeping with the taxi driver if she went on a night out. On Tuesday, a judge banned Melville from seeing Ms Worsfold for 10 years and gave him a two-year community order. Prosecutor Simon Mintz said Melville had been in a two and a half year relationship with Ms Worsfold, 37, of Buckley, until December 2018, but showed controlling behaviour even from the early days. Mr Mintz said Melville would "interrogate" Ms Worsfold about seeing her friends and became "furious" when she went on a night out, accusing her of sleeping with the taxi driver. Melville caused problems on a camping trip to France where friends described Ms Worslford as "withdrawn". The court heard Ms Worsfold was working at Wrexham Maelor Hospital and also going to university. The prosecutor said that when Melville bought her a car it would have been a "generous gesture" but he would use it as his own and take the keys.

He said she felt "in fear", adding: "Her fear was he would approach from fields at the rear of her home." Ms Worsfold suffered recurring nightmares, anxiety and carried a personal attack alarm, the court heard. Sion ap Mihangel, defending, called it "a sad case for all concerned" and "not a typical" one.

. Mr ap Mihangel said: "He does not have close family contacts. He does not speak to his mother. "The reaction he expected once he had gone through the operation was not what he expected. "Then things spiralled and he was clutching at someone (the victim Ms Worsfold) who did not feel the same. "He's still going through the process. There's another operation he has to go through.

"But, after a long career in the police force, he has a new job with a different employer. He has to travel and meet people which he enjoys." The judge, Her Honour Judge Nicola Jones, pointed out that Melville had denied using controlling and coercive behaviour at first. He even "turned the tables" and accused his victim of such actions. In fact, the judge said Melville caused Ms Worsfold "serious alarm or distress". But he eventually admitted the charge which spared Ms Worsfold the need to go through the intimacies of their relationship at a trial. He had served his community in the police force and had had an "exemplary character". The judge ordered Melville, now of Bushey Lane, Rainford, to do 30 days of rehabilitation activity to build his emotional resilience. But she also imposed a 10-year restraining order banning Melville from contacting or approaching Ms Worsfold directly or indirectly, including on social media. Nor must he go to an address in Buckley or the Wrexham Maelor Hospital unless it's to the Accident and Emergency Department for a medical reason. Finally, the judge told Melville: "Put this relationship behind you."
