"Callous" Worksop man ended relationship over phone before punching partner
A "callous" Worksop man who ended his ten-year relationship over the phone returned home and punched his partner in the face, a court has heard.
Jordan Jarvill telephoned to say "he had another girl on the go," before returning to his Furnival Street home drunk, at 4.30pm, on April 29, last year, said prosecutor Stella Moses.
When she blocked him from coming in, Jarvill punched her "quickly and very hard" three times in the left side of her face, leaving her “hurt, crying, in shock and pain.”
He later sent a voicemail to say "she deserved that slap," adding: "If you don't give me those clothes and that chicken money you're going to get worse."
He called her brother to say "I'm going to slice you up," and threatened to smash his windows.
The assault left Jarvill's partner feeling “like a prisoner in her own home," and scared he would breach his bail conditions, as he had threatened to burn down her shed in the past.
Nottingham Magistrates Court heard he has previous convictions for domestic violence on different victims, including a conviction for arson involving a family member.
His most recent convictions are for possessing a blade in May 2019, when he was jailed, and burglary, in June 2020, when a suspended sentence was imposed.
Arjun Medahar, mitigating, said: "He bitterly regrets what happened. Circumstances have changed. He still wants to apologise.
"He has self-referred to Addaction to address his alcohol use.”
The court heard Jarvill was alcohol-dependent at the time but now only drinks once a week and has begun a new relationship.
Jarvill, 29, now of Brocklesby Close, Gainsborough, pleaded guilty to assault, sending a threatening message and making threats to damage property, on the day of his trial, on March 10.
District judge Leo Pyle imposed a five-year restraining order banning him from contacting his ex-partner, on Friday.
He handed Jarvill 18 weeks in prison, suspended for two years, and ordered him to attend the building better relationships programme and up to 20 rehabilitation days.
He will pay £200 compensation, with a £128 surcharge and £300 costs, which will be deducted from his benefits.
