A JILTED IT expert bugged his ex’s TV and car after their 20-year marriage ended.
Stephen Ewart, 55, was convinced wife Deborah was having an affair before they split up.
He sneaked into his estranged partner’s home while she was away and planted a listening device in the TV and hid an iPhone in her car.
Ms Ewart told a court: “He sent text messages to me about TV shows I had been watching.”
At South Tyneside magistrates, prosecutor Jonathan Hanratty said: “She pulled out the TV unit and found a device which had flashing lights.”
Ewart, of Washington, admitted stalking and was jailed for 18 weeks, suspended.
He must wear an electronic tag to keep him away from his ex.
Mrs Ewart totally denied having an affair in her victim impact statement.
She said: "I still feel like I am being constantly watched by Stephen.
"I'm always looking over my shoulder. All I want is for him to leave me alone."
