A British Army dentist sent revenge porn videos of an SAS hero to a Cadbury heiress.

Maj Jennifer Wilson, 42, sent the sensitive pictures and video of Christian Craighead, 47, to his girlfriend Tobi-Jayne Cadbury, 36.

Wilson pleaded guilty to one count of sending indecent or grossly offensive electronic messages causing distress or anxiety, contrary to the Malicious Communications Act.

Aylesbury Crown Court heard that Wilson sent the images to Ms Cadbury between June 14 2022 and March 10 2023, according to the Daily Mail.

Ms Cadbury is the great-great granddaughter of the chocolate baron Richard Cadbury.

Wilson was also accused of stalking Ms Cadbury through two fake social media accounts called “mikewoodali53” and “crazy_fredo_87”.

She pleaded not guilty to the charge and entered the same plea for an allegation of perverting the course of justice.

Judge Recorder Wright ruled the first charge would lie on file and the second allegation was dismissed after prosecutor Neil King offered no evidence, the Mail said.

Recorder Wright told Wilson, of High Wycombe, Bucks, that she would be bailed pending sentencing reports.

The maximum time in prison for sending sexual photographs and film with the intention to cause distress is two years.

Mr Craighead, who served in the SAS having joined the Army at 16, was decorated for bravery for his role in defeating an Islamist terrorist attack. He was awarded the Conspicuous Gallantry Cross for the bravery he displayed in the attack on the Dusit D2 Hotel complex in Nairobi in January 2019.

He has since written a children’s book after he was banned from writing a personal memoir about the incident in Nairobi.

Global acclaim

Mr Craighead gained global acclaim after images of him dressed in civilian clothes, wearing body armour, carrying an automatic rifle and repeatedly entering the hotel complex to rescue civilians appeared in newspapers and on websites around the world.

In a previous interview with The Telegraph about his upcoming children’s book, he said: “It’s not the book people were waiting for, I know that, but I’m extremely proud of it. This book is not a response to not being allowed to publish another book – this is a different project.”

He added: “I don’t care if it only sells three copies. I didn’t write it to make money, I wrote it because I think the story is really important and if it helps someone then that’s great.”

Wilson will be sentenced on March 27 at Aylesbury Crown Court.

An Army spokesman said: “We are aware that Maj Jennifer Wilson has been released on bail by Aylesbury Crown Court pending sentencing. As the case is yet to conclude it would be inappropriate to comment further.”
