Flixborough woman 'lucky not to be facing Christmas in prison' Grimsby Crown Court told
A FLIXBOROUGH woman was told she was lucky not to be facing Christmas in prison after admitting to intimidating a witness.
Grimsby Crown Court heard Ellis-Briar Athersych, 21, of Lammings Close, had made threatening phone calls to Chloe Wharton on October 30.
Miss Wharton was the complainant in a theft case which had seen Athersych's boyfriend being arrested.
Prosecutor Simon Waley said Athersych had made two calls to Miss Wharton, asking her where she was, using abusive language and telling her she would "rip her head off".

However, a police officer was at the property taking further details about the theft – and arrested her when she came around.
Mitigating, Gordon Stables said Miss Athersych had only drunk the amount she had because she had attended the funeral of her best friend's mother – who she regarded as a "second mum" – that day.
Recorder Felicity Davies told her she was lucky not to be spending Christmas in prison, before imposing a four-month jail term, suspended for 18 months.
Six months' supervision and a three-month curfew were also imposed.
