Miranda Moore QC instructed by the Crown Prosecution Service, successfully secured the conviction of Sabine McNeil. The defendant was sentenced to 9 years for harassment and for breaching a restraining order.
Judge Sally Cahill QC said 'this case has to be one of the most serious cases of stalking and breach of a restraining order that there can be’.
McNeill, 74, claimed a primary school in Hampstead, north London, was at the centre of a satanic cult that cooked babies and ate them. The mathematician harassed four mothers she believed to be involved and encouraged others to turn against them, resulting in their families needing panic buttons installed in their homes.
