A student threatened to chop off her lecturer’s p3nis after she believed he was trying to mock her with a cartoon due to her lack of sexual experience. Stephanie Christol, 30, was sent a reading list by Dr Christopher Dillon which featured a cartoon called The Virgin Snail.
Christol attended King’s College London where she studied history and is believed to have met Dr Dillon in her final year when she was writing her dissertation.
Furious at the perceived slight she emailed Dr Dillon, who worked at the university’s Strand Campus, threatening to chop of his p3nis and stick it up his bottom.
The defendant, from Islington in London, also sent a series of emails and offensive Facebook messages about Dr Dillon’s partner’s appearance.
Dr Dillon told Westminster Magistrates’ Court that he had been helping Christol with her dissertation which was on First World War films.
He said: ‘One message threatened me with violence. Between April to 25 September there were dozens of emails. ‘One of them threatened to cut of my p3nis and shove it up my bottom. They were threatening I was concerned they may spread over to my partner.
‘Two of the messages said: “I am going to get you” and, “I am going to find a way to make you apologise.”
Christol sent her letters on pink and blue writing paper with the lecturer’s name on the envelope.
The lecturer went to the police in September 2016 who issued the student with a harassment warning.
But the bombardment continued and Christol sent five letters, and a framed picture to the lecturer’s pigeon hole when he was in Munich on research leave.
Christol denied it but was convicted on one count of harassment without violence.
She was granted conditional bail ahead of sentencing at Westminster Magistrates’ Court.
