Radiologist Denise Jane Lee, 40, of Sydney, copped to four of 10 charges against her ahead of a scheduled five-day hearing in the Downing Centre Local Court, the Australian Associated Press reported.
Lee, who was arrested in February 2017, copped to three counts of using a carriage service to harass, menace or offend and one count of intimidation, according to the report. Six additional charges were withdrawn.
The doctor was accused of becoming obsessive and sending thousands of abusive, threatening texts and emails to Matthew Holberton, his new girlfriend, and their relatives, according to the report.
Some of the alleged threats included: “Whatever you value most, I’ll target,” “I will make you pay,” and “You deserve everything you’re going to get,” according to the report.
Lee and Holberton had four dinner dates between July and September 2015, as well as two sexual encounters, before Holberton ended things and moved to Melbourne, the outlet reported.
Earlier this month, Magistrate Michael Barko refused to dismiss the charges against Lee on mental health grounds.
Lee’s admission came after hours of negotiations between the doctor’s lawyer and the prosecutor.
