Man emptied noxious substance over the head of NHS worker

A man emptied a bag of faeces on the head of an NHS worker, leaving her humiliated after her neighbour had been tormenting her for weeks.

He waited for her to leave the house to head to work before emptying the bag over her head.

Josh Wadem 22 appeared at Leeds Crown Court to hear the case after it was alleged that Wade had been waiting while she left her home in Litherland just after 7am on October 1st 2020.

At the time she was clearly identifiable as an NHS worker and swung the bag making contact with her leaving her smeared in his own faeces that he had been collecting in a shopping bag.

Back in December Wade was sentenced over the incident where he had previously pleaded guilty to administering a noxious substance and possessing cannabis for which he was jailed for 14 months.

He denied the charge of harassment that put a person in feat of violence, where it was alleged that he had ‘made threats to shoot’ the woman.

Prosecutors had decided to drop the charge on the basis that the charge of harassment had been incorporated with the noxious substance allegation.

in his defence, Lloyd Morgan told the court that Wade was remorseful and within his police interview recognised the impact this had had on the woman, having spent some time behind bars said this has had a positive impact on his life.

He needed this positive influece as he had suffered depression and was admitted as an inpatient at a psychiatric hospital.

Now he has experienced this and is not under these conditions he recognises that his behaviour was wrong and wishes it has never happened.

The purpose of the case held this time was to ensure the victim was projected and a restraining order was applied for once he was released from prison.

He was handed a five-year restraining order which means he cannot contact the NHS worker and will be unable to return to the home he lived.
