A 58-year-old woman has been sent to prison for 16 weeks and has been placed on the Sex Offenders Register after sexually assaulting an EMAS staff member.

Julie Hinde from Hucknall, a regular caller to EMAS, was found guilty at trial for the offence and appeared at Nottingham Magistrates Court on 18 November for sentencing.

She was sentenced to:

  • 16 weeks immediate custody
  • a two-year restraining order including to not contact the staff member directly or indirectly or via any social media
  • a period of seven years on the Sex Offenders Register


George Reid, Lead Security Management Specialist at EMAS, said:

“Our staff work hard every day to deliver the best possible care to the public we serve. Actions like this make their job even harder and we will always take action where we can.

“We have a zero tolerance approach to any level of abuse or assault against our staff. We worked with the staff to support them through the process of giving evidence with the police and the Crown Prosecution Service to ensure the defendant received the appropriate punishment.”
