A boyfriend went over the edge as he launched a furious revenge attack on his lover after finding out she had been starring in porn. The man identified as Paul Hewitt, 45, flew into a rage after discovering his girlfriend had been secretly working as an adult film actress without his knowledge. A court heard, he only discovered his partner's secret when his daughter from an earlier relationship recognised her in some of the videos and informed him. In a brutal act of revenge, Hewitt then locked his lover, who cannot be named for legal reasons, out of the home they shared in Walsall, West Mids., and hurled her belongings into the street.
He spat at her when she returned home from work on October 18 and went on a wrecking spree the next day when she revealed she wanted to appear in more porn movies. Out of anger, he destroyed pictures of the pair together and cut the landline phone while also bombarding the woman with threatening text messages for three days. He was later dragged to the court by the woman. He has now been sentenced.
Sentencing, Judge Nicholas Webb said: "You and your former partner had been in a relationship for two years when you discovered she had been working as a sex worker and your daughter had seen videos of her in action." "You then behaved in a threatening manner and spat at her. Cutting the phone line to her home was a menacing thing to do. "You also have numerous previous convictions, one of which was for domestic violence."
He was jailed for 11 months after pleading guilty to harassment and two cases of criminal damage at Wolverhampton Crown Court.
