Man jailed for strangling former partner

A man who beat and strangled his former partner has been jailed.

Michael Jamson, aged 30, breached a court order banning him from seeing the woman before repeatedly assaulting her over the course of three days in August last year.

As the abuse came to a head at an address in Wood Street, Eastwood, on 29 August, Jamson strangled his victim until she could no longer breathe.

Police were alerted when a passing driver stopped to intervene in an altercation outside the address and took the woman to safety.

Jamson was arrested later the same day and answered “no comment” to all the questions put to him.

He later pleaded guilty to assault, controlling and coercive behaviour, battery, intentional strangulation and breaching a restraining order.

Appearing at Nottingham Crown Court on Thursday he was jailed for two-and-a-half years.

Detective Constable Melissa Brown of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “This was an appalling and prolonged display of violence from a controlling and abusive bully.

“This kind of violence against women is treated with the utmost seriousness and will always be very thoroughly investigated.

“There are no excuses for this kind of behaviour, and we urge anyone who experiences it or witnesses it to call us immediately.

“I am pleased Jamson has now been held accountable for his actions and would also like to thank the brave member of the public who stopped to help the victim.

“Without her actions that day Jamson may never have been held to account and our victim may have been placed in additional danger.”
