He took advantage of a vulnerable woman who trusted him and subjected her to such violence that no human being should ever have to endure.
“The victim has shown immense courage in coming forward and we hope that he will find some comfort in the sentence handed down.
“ I urge all victims to speak to us. We have specially trained officers who work closely with partner organizations to provide appropriate support.
“Please do not suffer in silence; we are here to help and will do everything we can to pursue prosecutions and achieve justice.”
