A CHADWELL MAN was jailed after failing to comply with the community order imposed upon him after being found guilty of beating his partner.
John Dawson, Semple Court, Chadwell St Mary was sentenced to a domestic violence programme in May 2011 after an assault which he head-butted his partner and threatened her with a baseball bat whilst her children were in the flat.
The CPS outlined the number of meetings, Dawson had missed.
Dawson’s defence solicitor explained that on a number of occasions, he did not have enough money to travel to Basildon.
Chair of magistrates, Mrs Harper revoked the community sentence and jailed Dawson for twelve weeks.
