Growing up, Kristen and Turner were close. She often spent time at his house, playing with her cousins, and he was always at family gatherings.
Then one day, when she was 15, Kristen started receiving prank calls.
She said, “At first I thought it was just kids messing around in school. The man’s voice whispered into the phone and said sexual things.

Last month, 49-year-old Steven Turner was convicted of stalking with grave alarm and fear. He was jailed for two years

When she answered and heard the person’s voice, she instantly knew it was her stalker.
She says, “I recently broke up with my partner and the calls suddenly started again.
“He said sexual things about me and was breathing heavily. I told him to leave me alone, but he didn’t.’
In two months, she received more than 100 nightly calls, many waking her young baby.
One day she had enough and took as evidence that he pleased himself during a phone conversation.
But at the end, her stalker referred to Kristen’s baby.
She says, “The moment he spoke about my child, I feared for our safety.
“If I were visiting my parents, I’d ask my dad to follow me home in the car, just in case he was watching me. I wouldn’t go anywhere on my own.’
The calls continued and Kristen was fed up and decided to become a detective.

After I typed it on Facebook, Turner’s profile popped up.
She thought it was a mistake and contacted her sister and mother. But they confirmed that the number belonged to her uncle.

Oddly enough, Turner encouraged Kristen to go to the police.
So she went to the station along with her evidence and officers took her statement.
And from that day on, she never received another joke.
Later that month, Steven was arrested, but denied the charges.
As police gathered evidence, another woman was identified as a victim of his stalking.
Last month, Turner was convicted of two counts of stalking at Sheffield Crown Court and sentenced to two years in prison and a five-year restraining order for both victims.

“I’m relieved he’s off the streets, unable to terrorize anyone else.”
