Main article content
Warwickshire Police has welcomed the sentencing of a Bedworth man at Warwickshire Magistrates’ Court following domestic abuse offences committed last year.
Thomas Michael Muldowney, 31, of Heath Road was sentenced to 18 weeks imprisonment.
In August 2020, following an argument, his former partner phoned him and asked him to leave. When she returned home she found he had damaged her property.
Muldowney dragged his ex-partner back into the house before punching and biting her.
He was sentencd yesterday (Wednesday 14 April) at Coventry Magistrates' Court after pleading guilty to assault, harassment and criminal damage. He was also ordered to pay £2000 in compensation.
PC Kyle Marchi said: “Muldowney has shown himself to be a violent and dangerous man who will now face the consequences of his actions.
“Hopefully this sends a clear message that domestic abuse crimes will not be tolerated and will be thoroughly investigated by Warwickshire Police.
“The victim in this case has shown courage and strength through the investigation and court case. I hope this outcome provides her with some form of closure which allows her to move on with her life.
“We are committed to tackling domestic abuse and working with our partners to reduce the harm it causes. It’s a despicable crime that effects people of all ages, ethnicities, genders and sexual orientations.
“We will always look to bring offenders to justice and put support in place for victims.”
