Judge scolds bully boyfriend
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.
