Daniel Hoyle, 34, stood trial and was found guilty of continuously harassing a woman via phone and online, The Sun reports.
According to the newspaper, Hoyle swarmed his victim with calls and text messages – up to 130 a day – threatening to strangle her or splash her with acid, and posted images and videos of her on porn websites.

He also allegedly created a fake Facebook account purporting to be the woman, which featured a video of her dancing nude and advertised the lady as a stripper.
The defense counsel said his client "accepted his offences", adding that the man suffered from "a mental health condition which may have been aggravated by steroid abuse."
