He was given a 26-week prison sentence but it was suspended for two years, the bench saying that there had been a long time since the attack during which there had been no further incidents and the pair had been reconciled. But he must attend a building better relationships programme, complete 100 hours of unpaid work and pay £722 in court costs and a victim services surcharge.
