Woman guilty of stalking, harassment on gay dating app flees to France
A woman who was found guilty of stalking, harassment and of sharing private sexual photos on a gay dating app has fled to France.
Yannick Glaudin posed as a man on the app between December 2017 and July 2018, according to BBC News.
She pleaded guilty to the string of charges, which included harassment without violence; stalking without fear, alarm or distress; and disclosing private sexual photographs on the gay dating app with intent to cause distress.
The 30-year-old entered her guilty plea on July 11 and was then granted bail—but subsequently failed to reappear in court.
Prosecutors say Glaudin has fled to France
A European arrest warrant is being sought and Inner London Crown Court has delayed sentencing while Glaudin is being tracked down.
Prosecutors claim she has fled to France—where she is originally from—according to the Daily Mail.
Claire Cooper, prosecuting, said Glaudin “moved back to France” following her guilty plea, and added: “Those who instruct me are in the process of obtaining a European arrest warrant for her.”
“Those who instruct me are in the process of obtaining a European arrest warrant for her.”

However, the judge expressed concern that this could be challenging—given the “current political climate”— and asked the prosecutor if there was “a good chance” they would achieve their aim of tracking her down.
Cooper said that she believed they would be able to get the arrest warrant as they know where she is residing in France.
