20 year old Luton man sentenced to 23 months for Domestic Abuse related offences
Bedfordshire Police reports that a 20 year old man from Luton who inflicted a campaign of fear and violence on his girlfriend has been jailed for 23 months.
The Luton man was sentenced at Luton Crown Court on Thursday 27th October after pleading guilty to a string of offences.
The defendant attended Luton Police Station in August to hand himself in for a vicious and aggressive assault on his girlfriend. He admitted his abusive behaviour, stating that she didn’t deserve to be the victim of his actions. A sustained campaign of violent abuse was revealed and he was arrested and charged for assault, threats to kill, possession of an imitation firearm with intent to cause fear of violence and possession of a class A drug.
The judge handed the defendant consecutive sentences for the charges which resulted in him being sentenced to a jail term of a total of 23 months.
Beds Police have a dedicated unit responsible for investigating domestic abuse and serious sexual offences. PC Sally Chambers from the specialist Emerald Unit said: “The custodial sentence reflects the serious nature of these offences and that domestic abuse will not be tolerated. We work closely with partners to offer support, advice and guidance to victims of abuse and encourage people to speak out.
