A MAN has been sentenced to four years and three months in prison for four counts of actual bodily harm and criminal damage.

Gregg Mosedale, age 32, was convicted at Worcester Crown Court on Monday (August 21).

The domestic abuser of Milward Close was also handed a 10-year restraining order with regard to his victim.

The court heard Mosedale had caused his ex-partner bruising by kicking her in the torso on one occasion. 

On two further occasions, he repeatedly punched and kicked her causing bruising to her arms and legs.

He gave her black eyes and split her lip by elbowing her in the face.

The criminal damage conviction was for breaking two light switches in her flat by punching them.

Mosedale has a history of domestic violence abuse with previous partners.

The judge said he is a danger to women and to any woman who entered a relationship with him.

Detective Inspector James Bamber, of Worcester, Protecting Vulnerable People team, said: "I welcome the sentence passed to Mosedale and hope this sends a message out to all victims and survivors of domestic abuse that we will support them.

"I hope the bravery of his victim will encourage others who may find themselves in a similar position to come forward and report them to us.

"Both we, the police, and the courts take any reports of domestic abuse very seriously.

"Anybody who contacts us will be listened to and anyone concerned about a loved one or themselves should call us too."
