American billionaire’s daughter Haley Meijer was the alleged victim of a stalking by a St Ives man who was married to her, Truro magistrates heard.

James Michael Casbolt, 37, of Windsor Terrace, St Ives, entered no plea to an allegation of stalking her, causing her alarm or distress, sending mass e-mails containing photographs and videos of her to family and friends and posting them on the Internet for public viewing, during October and July.

The case was sent to Truro Crown Court on August 22.

Casbolt was given bail with conditions not to contact Ms Meijer or to post anything about the Meijer family on the Internet or any other public medium.
