Domestic abuse: Perpetrators to be offered help to change in Sheffield regime
The victim’s ordeal unfolded throughout 2020 and 2021, the court heard.
Along with the physical abuse she suffered, Hallam, 52, psychologically controlled her, inflicting a series of coercive and manipulative behaviors.
He was arrested on January 11 this year and later charged with domestic violence offences.
In February, a jury found him guilty of controlling or coercive behavior and assault by beating.
He was sentenced to 14 months in prison and given a six-year restraining order by the same court on Tuesday, April 26.
South Yorkshire Police T/Sgt Samuel Mitchell said: ‘I am pleased Hallam has been given the immediate custodial sentence he rightly deserves.
“His cruel and callous actions caused his victim to suffer for more than two years, and he showed no empathy.
“I want to thank the victim for their courage in coming forward and reporting what happened. While the sentence can never undo Hallam’s horrific actions, I hope it can help provide her victim the first steps towards healing.It is thanks to her that a dangerous individual now finds herself behind bars in her place.
“If you or a loved one have been affected by domestic violence, know that it is not your fault. The culprit is the culprit.
“Know that we are here, we will listen to you and we will do everything we can to support you and bring the offenders to justice.
“You can report us by calling 101 999 in an emergency or using our online portal.”
