Felicity Gerry appears on LBC Radio to explain the law on harassment after the verdict in the Justin Lee Collins trial

Comedian Justin Lee Collins was convicted of harassment after a trial at St Albans Crown Court in which it was alleged he had emotionally abused his former girlfriend.

He was sentenced to 140 hours community service.

Felicity explained to Nick Ferrari that the jury had concluded that Mr Collins’ actions amounted to harassment but the judge has to set the level of sentence in comparison to other cases.
