PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! A lapsed alcoholic punched and kicked his former partner before holding a bread knife to her throat and threatening to kill her. Aaron Ivey, 37, avoided jail as he has sought help for his demons in the year since the incident. Ivey, of Trelander Highway in Truro, appeared at Truro Crown Court for sentence after pleading guilty to assault occasioning actual bodily help and criminal damage. Prosecuting the case, Althea Brooks described how Ivy and the victim had been in a relationship for 10 years and had four children together before separating in June of last year. On June 22, 2021, Ivey arrived to pick the children up for school and threw a can of drink at the defendant that missed, before punching a hole in the wall. Two days later he attended the same address following a text exchange between the pair about a man Ivey believed the victim was seeing. Ivey said he was a dead man and on arrival pushed his way into the house.

As the victim lay on the floor Ivey went to the kitchen and fetched a breadknife and held it to the victim’s throat while threatening to kill her. She was eventually able to contact the police and Ivey was arrested. In her victim impact statement, the complainant spoke of being genuinely fearful for her life. Representing Ivey, Ramsay Quaife said: “The effect of imprisonment would outweigh where he is in life today. It’s been over a decade since his last conviction and he has spent most of that decade sober. “What he did that night he did whilst returning to alcohol. But today you are dealing with a very different man. It is a man who has sorted himself out and sought help himself. He attends Alcoholics Anonymous and Man Down. “He is working as a labourer Monday to Friday and his sole focus is his children.

.” Sentencing Ivey, Judge Simon Carr described the incident as “an extremely unpleasant domestic violence incident”. Judge Carr said: “You had been in a relationship with the victim and had four children. By June 2020 the relationship came to an end and you had no interest and no rights in your former partner’s private life. You lacked the maturity to understand that.

You punched and kicked her repeatedly and pulled her by her hair before, most seriously of all, took a knife, held it to her throat and threatened to kill her. “You are 37 and haven’t been before this court in 13 years.” Judge Carr then spoke of how Ivey has sought help for his alcohol problem, is in full-time work and has gone through the family court for access to his children. He added: “Put simply you are an alcoholic. You must never drink again and if you do you’ll return to the sort of behaviour you displayed at the time.” Judge Carr said there were two factors that saved Ivey from jail. The first being that it’ll be difficult to explain to Ivey’s children why their dad has gone away having only recently re-established contact. The second was that given Ivey’s efforts to address his issues, there is a real hope rehabilitation will work. Ivey was given a 15 month jail sentence, suspended for two years. He most also complete a building better relationships programme, a rehabilitation activity requirement and pay the victim £2,150 in compensation. A restraining order was also put in place.
