Man admits to repeated wife attacks

A MAN, aged, 33, who repeatedly assaulted his wife has been remanded in custody by a judge.

Aaron Collett also admitted witness intimidation when he went to her home and again assaulted her and damaged property.

He pleaded guilty to five counts of common assault, one of criminal damage and one of intimidation when he appeared at Swindon Crown Court.

Collett carried out the first two assaults on wife Hannah within a few days; the first on Sunday, November 4, then on the following Thursday.

The second two assaults both took place on November 21, after which she made a complaint to police.

Collett, formerly of West-bury but who gave the court an address in Woolpack Meadows, Trowbridge, then committed the final three offences on New Year’s Day.

He assaulted Mrs Collett and damaged a patio table and window at a time when he knew she was to be a witness in a criminal matter.

Mike Jeary, defending, said Collett had only that day decided to admit the charges.

Judge Douglas Field adjourned the case to February 15 for a report and remanded Collett in custody until then.

I suppose it is right, but repeated wife attacks (headline) sounds as if the wife is doing the attacking.
you know, like repeated shark attacks on an Australian beach.

nb I do not condone spousal attacks from whichever direction they are administered.

The punishment will fit the crime and it'll be dealt with by the law and not by others acting out Ed's stupid and uninformed comment.
The victims don't need extra exposure via the media to add to their heartache and distress let alone small minded arm chair thugs suggesting violence towards another,two wrongs don't make a right Ed
