Collins stayed silent as he walked out of the court and got into a waiting car after hearing the verdict.
Detective Inspector Justine Jenkins led the investigation for Hertfordshire Police:
The judge at St Albans Crown Court sentenced Collins to carry out 140 hours unpaid work within the next 18 months. He was also ordered to pay £3,500 in prosecution costs.
Collins showed no emotion as the verdict was announced. During the trial the jury heard evidence that he was a controlling, jealous boyfriend who assaulted Anna Larke.
The court was told he made her write down every sexual encounter she had ever had and stopped her using social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter after reading her messages.
