Judge scolds bully boyfriend

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Fun On The Farm - By Sean Ax­tell

A fa­ther-of-two was con­demned by a judge for drunk­enly hit­ting his part­ner in the face as she held their baby daugh­ter.

Christo­pher Jee, 27, slapped his part­ner af­ter she re­fused to let him play mu­sic as she wanted peace and quiet for their 18-month-old child.

Jee, of Sparkeswood Av­enue, Rol­ven­den, was sen­tenced at Folke­stone Mag­is­trates’ Court on Wed­nes­day of last week af­ter he was con­victed of the as­sault in April.

The court heard how Jee, who has not worked for 10 years, was out­side the prop­erty drink­ing when he asked for the mu­sic to be played.

Prose­cut­ing, Neil Sweeney ex­plained: “Mr Jee had left the ad­dress, re­turned with a friend, and was de­scribed as very drunk.

“The vic­tim was sit­ting on the sofa with her daugh­ter on her lap, when he slapped her around the face.

“She de­scribed it as com­ing from ‘out of nowhere’.”

Part of the vic­tim state­ment read: “I had no fi­nan­cial sup­port from him. I am mak­ing this state­ment for my daugh­ter.”

Mr Sweeney added that Jee de­nied the at­tack dur­ing a po­lice in­ter­view, claim­ing he would not hit a woman even though she was pro­vok­ing him.

The court heard how Jee has been di­ag­nosed with at­ten­tion deficit hy­per­ac­tiv­ity dis­or­der (ADHD) and a per­son­al­ity dis­or­der.

He now ad­mits to drink­ing four or five beers a day and is a “five out of 10 for drunk­en­ness.”

District Judge Justin Bar­ron gave him a 12 month com­mu­nity sen­tence and or­dered him not to con­tact his ex-part­ner for two years.

He must pay £585 in fines and ob­serve a cur­few for 12 weeks from 8pm to 6am.
