Mum of two threatens to stab neighbour
A STROUD mother of two appeared before Gloucester Crown Court for threatening to kill her next-door neighbour with a large knife after complaining about her playing noisy music.
Sharon Bishop, 26, of Nursery Close, told police she ‘wanted to make a point’ when she scared neighbour Sophie Driver with a knife.
She said she’d had trouble sleeping and had become fed up with the noise of her neighbour’s music and laughing.
Bishop pleaded guilty to making a threat with a bladed article in a public place and was given a six month jail sentence suspended for two years.
She was placed under supervision for two years and given a mental health treatment order.
Judge Jamie Tabor QC told her people who did what she did would normally expect imprisonment but he accepted she had mental health difficulties.
