A Wrexham man who urinated on a former partner in a degrading attack has abandoned an appeal against his sentence.
Mold Crown Court heard how Blake Lloyd Roberts first drove off in a car doing wheel spins and handbrake turns, before returning and threatening to stab a man with a knife.
There was then a dispute with his ex-partner and Roberts twisted her wrists to get the car keys off her.
He then pushed her so hard she hit her head on a door frame and then while shouting at her grabbed her throat and banged her head on a wall three times.
While she was upset and crying on the floor, he urinated all over her, the court heard.
When she got up and entered the kitchen, he grabbed her by the throat and pushed her into the living room shouting at her ”can I hit you?”
A neighbour disturbed by the noise came to the door and managed to get her to safety.
Roberts, 28, of Castlefields, Tanyfron, had been jailed for 24 weeks by Wrexham magistrates last month after he admitted assault, a public order offence and driving while disqualified and without insurance.
As defence barrister Simon Rogers stood up to put forward the defendant’s appeal Judge Niclas Parry, sitting with two magistrates, said his colleagues had asked him whether the court had the power to increase the sentence as well as reducing it.
Following a short break Roberts asked to abandon the appeal.
Judge Parry told him that he had been a fortunate young man.
The sentence imposed could have been a lot longer, he said.
“This was a disgraceful incident,” Judge Parry told him.
What made it disgraceful in particular was the presence of a very young child and that his actions were degrading towards his victim.
A restraining order not to approach the victim, made by magistrates, remains in place and the judge warned him that if he breached that then he could receive a five year sentence.
