Builder punched partner after sex
An Ashford builder has been sent to prison after a judge heard how he hit a lover after they had sex.
Russell Henderson got angry after his partner told him she hadn’t enjoyed their romp.
The 33-year-old thug punched her in the thigh – one of three attacks in November last year, Canterbury Crown Court heard.
Now Henderson, of Beaver Lane, Ashford, has been jailed for 10 months after being convicted of three common assaults while in breach of a suspended sentence.
Prosecutor Keith Yardy said the offences came to light when the victim called the police to have Henderson removed from her address.
“That was at 8.30am but at 5.20pm, she called the police again saying Henderson was banging on her door and told officers of the assaults.”
She said that in November, her lover had pushed her onto the bed and stopped her leaving until she screamed for help. “As she did, he placed a hand around her throat and the other covering her mouth.
“On November 15 she had reluctantly agreed to have sexual intercourse with him. She told him she wasn’t enjoying it which annoyed Henderson, who stopped and punched her thigh,” he added.
The following morning Hend- erson began a row over her car keys and she was pushed and pulled violently. “This has been an abusive relationship and there have been a number of incidents involving the police,” he added.
Judge James O’Mahony told him: “Domestic violence is treated seriously in court and by the public.
“Your previous offences show that you are a violent man and pose a risk to anyone you are in a relationship with.
“You also have a complete disregard for court orders and your criminal record is appalling,” he added.
Henderson was jailed for a total of 10 months and ordered to keep away from his ex-lover indefinitely.
