A man who made chilling threats to his girlfriend on the phone from prison saying he'd cut off her tongue & hold an iron to her face has been given a two year sentence.
Despite his partner refusing to make a complaint against him, Stefan Spooner was given the sentence at Birmingham Crown Court for repeatedly harassing the woman with a series of menacing calls.
Inspector Cate Webb-Jones, said:
Spooner was due to be released from prison in March having been jailed for attacking two women at a party in the early hours of 2 June 2012.
The 24-year-old racially abused one party guest before breaking her jaw with a punch that knocked her unconscious… then repeatedly kicked and punched the woman’s friend as she tried intervening.
However, police became aware of abusive calls made to his partner ? who he’d been in a relationship with for at least four years ? between November last year and January in which he threatened extreme violence.
Police secured a harassment charge against Spooner ahead of his release date ? and after being refused bail his stay behind bars was extended.
He went on to admit one count of harassment with fear of violence.
