A P.E.I. man will be sentenced May 4 after he placed a series of phone calls and text messages to a woman he was not supposed to contact.

Anilkumar Patel appeared before chief judge Nancy Orr in provincial court in Charlottetown last week and pleaded guilty for breaking a recognizance between Dec. 16 and 18.

On Nov. 15, Patel had signed the recognizance to have no contact with the woman.

The court heard he sent text messages, including links to videos on how to enjoy life and pictures of himself.

“I want you to be happy,” read one of the texts.

The content of the voice messages were vulgar and explicit. One of the voice messages said, “I want to be clear, you spoiled my life, so I’m going to spoil yours, too”.

The woman contacted police as a result of his attempts to contact her.

Police contacted Patel and he turned himself in.

He was co-operative with police during the investigation.

Patel has no prior criminal record.
