A man who stalked his former wife sending her bizarre threatening letters has been jailed.

Czesary Tarnowski was sent to prison for 75 days and ordered to pay an £80 victim’s surcharge by Blackpool Magistrates.

Tarnowski, 34, of Hull Road, Blackpool, admitted harrassment causing alarm and fear to his former wife.

The court heard that the couple had split up in 2008 after Tarnowksi was convicted of two offences of assaulting her when she thought she was having affairs.

Martine Connah, prosecuting, said that the car valeter this year started to send his wife letters hand delivering them.

He would also park outside her home.

In one letter he said her cousin had been ordered to kill her.

“These actions were in breach of a county court restraining order granted after they split up.

“He was not to have any contact with her or enter the street where she lives,” said the prosecutor.

Police arrested Tarnowski who admitted he was aware of the restraining order.

Jessica Partington, defending, said her client had been in custody pending the hearing of the case and his mental health assessed.

“He thinks he was trying trying to rekindle his relationship with his children,” she added,

Magistrates also imposed their own restraining order which says he must have no contact with his ex wife or family apart from through solicitors.
