On one occasion, Webbe Merritt threatened to send photos and videos of the naked woman to his family, and also made silent calls to a hidden number.

Westminster Court Judge Paul Goldspring has stated that he found the defendant “unconvincing” according to the BBC. Webbe was “enormously shocked” by the verdict and had already announced that he would appeal.
