Alleged stalker behind bars
A BUNDABERG woman was back before Bundaberg Magistrates Court on Monday after being charged with stalking and breaching bail.
Simmone Eileen Norgrove, 21, was taken into custody in December after she was allegedly caught following an elderly man, whom she was already on bail for allegedly stalking.
She allegedly followed the man in her car on one occasion and circled the man and his wife at a sports club in December.
Police prosecutor Sergeant Barry Stevens said Norgrove should be denied bail for her own protection and to stop further offending.
Lawyer Thomas Bray said Norgrove's situation was a “terrible dilemma in many ways”.
He said the more recent offending was far less “proactive” than other offences she had committed.
Magistrate Jennifer Batts refused Norgrove bail. She will reappear on February 21.
