Crazed Banker Even Tried To Have Neighbor Committed To A Mental Institution
A banker and his wife waged a vicious and devious five-year campaign against a neighbor in a bid to increase the value of their home.
Peter and Kim Bayliss even tried to get Sarah Saxton declared insane by spreading lies about her all because they wanted 12 inches of her backyard garden.
The battle began in 2009 when the Baylisses attempted to take Sarah Saxton to court to seize 12 inches of her garden. Saxton was able to block the seizure which incensed the Baylisses. In that case, the court heard how Mrs Saxton a caregiver for the disabled, suffered a whiplash injury after she was “violently grabbed and shaken by Mr. Bayliss’s mother” when she attempted to use her right of way to the garden in July 2009.
After their defeat, the couple believed that if Saxton were “out of the way” they could increase the size of their garden. Mr. Bayliss and his artist wife then concocted a plan to have Mrs Saxton committed to a mental institution and removed from her home.
The crazed banker and his wife also repeatedly tried to have Sarah Saxton arrested with false allegations. They even contacted social services in an attempt to have her fired as a care giver.
After nearly five years of putting up with the Baylisses, a Central London County Court the judge ordered the Baylisses to pay Mrs Saxton £36,750 in damages for harassment and nuisance. Mr Bayliss must also pay Mrs Saxton £2,000 for assaulting her and the couple were ordered to pay legal costs estimated at more than £300,000.
Judge Nigel Gerald who heard the case called the Baylisses, “Dishonest and devious”
