Stalker back in jail after breaking lifetime order

    A serial stalker is behind bars again after breaching his lifetime restraining order to approach his victim.

    Elliot Fogel, 37, was jailed for two years for continuing his campaign against Claire Waxman. The pair first met at college, 21 years ago.

    The former freelance Sky Sports News producer breached the order in February last year when he was seen driving close to Ms Waxman's business in north west London.

    Fogel was previously jailed for four months in 2010 for an earlier breach.

    Fogel began stalking Ms Waxman in 2003. He visited her workplace, stored tens of thousands of web searches about her, posed as a prospective parent at her daughter's nursery school, and paid for searches to be carried out on her, her husband and her father.

    He would also call her office telephone during the night to listen to her voice on the answering machine.

    At Inner London Crown Court last Friday, Judge Ian Darling told Fogel that his campaign had "ruined" Ms Waxman's life and said that, in "mentally terrorising her," Fogel had calculatingly affected her children, family and friends.

    The judge rejected a plea to send Fogel to the country's first "stalking clinic" to receive treatment.

    Fogel told the JC last year that he was "full of remorse" for his actions, which he said had been "interpreted in such a negative way. I am just sick of the whole thing and wish this continued animosity could come to an end."

    At one time, both families attended Mill Hill Synagogue. It is understood its minister, Rabbi Yitzchak Schochet, had attempted to help and had been asked by police to act as an intermediary.
