UPDATE - Warwickshire man sentenced for sexual and violent offences

A man is beginning a 14-year prison sentence after being convicted at Warwick Crown Court for the offences of controlling and coercive behaviour, three counts of rape, one count of actual bodily harm and one count of threats to kill against a relative of the victim.

Amarjit Dhaliwal

Amarjit Dhaliwal, aged 39, of Warwick was found guilty by a unanimous verdict following trial at Warwick Crown Court on Thursday, 21 June and was sentenced to 14 years imprisonment upon which Judge De Bertodano imposed a potential eight year extension should Dhaliwal be considered a danger to future partners.

After forming a relationship with the victim, Dhaliwal subjected her to months of threatening, physical and psychological abuse.

The offences were committed against a vulnerable woman and whose contact with her family was controlled by Dhaliwal. The victim sustained repeated abuse and rape. 

Detective Constable Rachel Priestley said: "We hope that this conviction demonstrates our commitment to victims. These offences have a huge impact on victims not only physically but mentally and emotionally.

"We have specially trained officers working across Warwickshire Police who will do everything possible to safeguard those who are vulnerable."
