This afternoon Sabine McNeill was found guilty on four charges of stalking parents whose children were named by Ella Draper in 2014 as belonging to a “Satanic death cult” based in several schools and a church in Hampstead, North London.
In addition, she was found guilty of six of 17 charges of breaching a restraining order which was put in place by HHJ Worsley following the collapse of Sabine and Neelu’s trial for witness intimidation in July 2016.
After the jury foreperson read out the verdicts, HHJ Sally Cahill said that she would need to take stock; she postponed sentencing to next week.
In response to a question from Judge Cahill about whether the Crown would be amending the existing restraining order, Miranda Moore QC said that she and Philip Stott had written a Criminal Behaviour Order (CBO) for Judge Cahill’s consideration.
According to the CPS website,
The CBO is available on conviction for any criminal offence in any criminal court. The order is aimed at tackling the most serious and persistent offenders where their behaviour has brought them before a criminal court.
CBOs include prohibitions to stop the anti-social behaviour, and may also include requirements to address the underlying causes of the offender’s behaviour.
Sabine was taken back to Bronzefield Prison to await sentencing.
