Jordan Levien, 23, of Cranes Way, Borehamwood, in Hertfordshire was arrested and charged in January following fear of violence and criminal damage offences last year.

He was remanded into custody after pleading not guilty to the offences at Luton Magistrates’ Court.

Levien admitted his wrongdoing at a later court hearing and on Wednesday March 23 he was given a six month prison sentence suspended for two years.

Det Con David Adams said: “There is never any justification for abuse in any relationship and I would like to make it clear that it is not acceptable. Bedfordshire Police is committed to tackling domestic violence. We do our utmost to protect victims and prosecute offenders.

“I welcome this sentence which impacts Levien’s freedom and reflects the severity of his actions. He wouldn’t admit his guilt or being criminally responsible for these offences when interviewed, but the investigation from the Domestic Abuse Investigation Safeguarding Unit and overwhelming evidence made it clear going to trial was futile.

“Levien is now in a position that if he commits any further crime or breaches these stringent conditions he will have to serve this suspended jail term. Let this be a message to anyone that victim safety is our priority and if you are convicted it will have a substantial effect on your personal and professional life.”

Levien is also subject of a curfew for three months and has received a two-year supervision order requiring him to attend an anger management course. A restraining order was also granted to protect the victim.
