Game Of Thrones Actor Jailed For 6 Months For Threatening Girlfriend
Former actor of HBO’s Game of Thrones has been jailed for 16 months. Stuart Hawkings was an extra on the hit HBO fantasy series based on the George R. R. Martin book series.
Hawkings harassed his ex-girlfriend threatening her from a prison cell. He threatened to ‘do a Raoul Moat’ which is a reference to the bodybuilder who shot three people in July 2010. He’s been jailed for 16 months. He made the comments because he thought his girlfriend was having an affair with a police officer. The 29-year-old has been jailed twice for repeatedly broke restraining orders relating to the mother of his child who’s the victim. He was imprisoned for nearly 16 months, after admitting that he breached the restraining order and the non-molestation order.
Judge Andrew Lockhart had this to say when sentencing the actor; “You are nearly 40, and you were not before a court until 2016 when things broke down and you would not accept that relationship was over. This victim has become particularly vulnerable as a result of your conduct. This was significant offending and now you have to have a sentence that will protect your former partner for a significant period. There is no violence, but there comes a time when this type of conduct becomes psychological violence.”
For half a year he was in Belfast working on Game of Thrones. Prosecutor Barry McElduff saif that Hawkings made the victim’s life miserable, all because he couldn’t accept that his relationship with his ex was over.
Adding; “Because of the perceived threat, she was advised to leave her property that night, which she did with some friends. As they were going to the car, they saw the defendant driving past the address in his car. She had thought the defendant no longer knew where she lived, and she described herself as being panicky and on edge, and they drove to a nearby police station.”
The actor will pay for the repeated offences against the victim his ex, and for the things he said, the threats made have all been taken into consideration.
