Domestic Violence Ignored By the Justice System in the UK

JusticeYou make something cheaper, and you will see more of it. Anger as man who abused girlfriend is spared prison by judge who told him there are ‘lots more fish in the sea’.

A man who has been convicted of coercive control has been spared prison after a judge told him to leave his ex-girlfriend alone because there are “lots more fish in the sea”.

Alexander Heavens, 24, subjected Stacey Booth, also 24, to a campaign of physical and emotional abuse during their relationship.

No jail time. No punishment. No justice.

[The abused girlfriend] said: “The fact he’s been given a second chance is like they’ve let him get away with it. They’ve not made an example of him.

If you don’t punish crimes, then they must not be serious.
