THUG Sean Bailey has been jailed for beating up a woman.

The 27-year-old assaulted the woman twice and left her covered in bruises.

Judge Ian Pearson said Bailey had shown no remorse for the attacks on the woman, who cannot be named for legal reasons.

Bailey, of Robin Gardens, Wecock, was found guilty of two counts of common assault after a week-long trial at Portsmouth Crown Court.

But he was cleared of four counts of assault causing actual bodily harm, two of making threats to kill, three of false imprisonment and one of sexual assault.

The assaults happened between February and August last year.

Jailing him for 11 months Judge Pearson said: ‘I am satisfied that you carried out, on these two occasions, a number of unpleasant assaults upon your victim, causing at the very least severe bruising.

‘You have shown no remorse whatsoever, indeed you have almost revelled in these proceedings.

‘These two offences of common assault are so serious that only a custodial sentence may be justified for them.’

The offences happened while Bailey had a suspended sentence hanging over him for harassing an ex-girlfriend.

The judge said the case was aggravated by the ongoing impact on the victim.

Earlier this year Bailey was convicted of a charge of voyeurism after he filmed a couple having sex in their home. He was ordered to sign the sex offenders’ register for 10 years.

The judge imposed a restraining order banning him from contacting his latest victim for three years and warned him he would be jailed if he breached it.
