Kieran Hemsley, 32, from Porthcawl, was arrested and later charged with domestic violence grievous bodily harm and breach of his restraining order put in place to protect his ex-partner.

During the assault, Hemsley punched his partner to the head and kicked her, subsequently puncturing her lung, to which the victim was hospitalised for a number of days.

He was placed on remand and pleaded not guilty.

During the trial, a jury found him guilty and Hemsley was sentenced at Cardiff Crown Court on December 8 to eight years in prison and handed an unlimited restraining order.

Detective Constable Lloyd Williams, who was in charge of the case, has praised the victim’s bravery. He said:

“Kieran Hemsley is dangerous man who breached his restraining order and callously beat his own partner.

“It takes a lot of strength to speak out against your attacker and I am full of praise for the brave victim. She did the right thing and her courage has now seen a dangerous man put behind bars.

“Our message to anyone who might be suffering in silence – please come forward and speak to us, we are here for you.”
