A piece in yesterday’s Times. Excerpts:
A violent man who abused two partners has been ordered to tell police if he begins a relationship during the next seven years.
Kylle Godfrey, who subjected one of his partners to a campaign of ‘horrendous’ abuse, is believed to be the first person in England and Wales to be made the subject of such an order…
Detective Inspector Jane Topping, of the community safety unit in Hackney, northeast London, said, ‘This order gives us a new way of protecting victims of domestic abuse and prevents other women [my emphasis – it’s a good thing men are never the victims of domestic violence] from suffering at the hands of people like Godfrey, and helps our efforts to tackle domestic violence …
It follows a similar order imposed on John O’Neill, who is required to give police details of when he intends to have sex.
An indefinite sexual risk order was imposed on Mr O’Neill, of York, after he was cleared of rape [my emphasis]. He was initially banned from having sex unless he gave police 24 hours’ notice. A failure to do so would result in five years’ prison.
If everyone who read this gave us just £1 – or even better, £1 monthly – we could change the world. Click here to make a difference. Thanks.
