A WREXHAM man found guilty of a "prolonged" attack on his ex-partner has been jailed. 

Daniel Evans, of Ffordd Offa, Rhos, appeared before Caernarfon Crown Court for sentencing on Thursday (May 9). 

The 46-year-old had previously been found guilty of assault occasioning actual bodily harm following a trial. 

Prosecuting, Oliver Wilson said that on the evening of April 29, 2023, Evans was at home with his then partner, Charlene Clutton, watching television and drinking alcohol. 

Things were said to be fine at first, but then the defendant "changed". He became paranoid, as he had in the past, that Miss Clutton was messaging other men. Miss Clutton entered the bedroom, and he pushed her onto the bed, followed by a "series of assaults". 

The court heard Evans punched and kicked Miss Clutton in a "prolonged assault" over a number of hours which left her with multiple bruises to her body. 

Miss Clutton, who had previously been in an abusive relationship that Evans was convicted of in 2016, said in a victim personal statement that she had rekindled the relationship as she truly thought he had changed his ways. 

The victim said she was "paralysed with fear" during the incident and said "I truly thought I was going to die". 

"Emotionally I feel a wreck, and it's going to take me a long time to get over this," she said. 


The court heard that Evans had 10 previous convictions for 46 offences - including battery involving Miss Clutton in 2016 when he thought she was meeting another man. 

Defending, Myles Wilson, said that Evans had been acquitted of the most serious allegations of threats to kill and threatening with a blade. He said that Miss Clutton's injuries were not "prolific" and that the acts of violence must have been "relatively few in number" over the course of the evening into the early hours.

Mr Wilson added that Evans has applied to enrol on a drug counsellor's course to help addicts. 

Judge Timothy Petts said Evans had shown "no remorse" for the offence and that his "unpredictable, violent behaviour" means he continues to pose a "high-risk" to the public.

Judge Petts jailed Evans for two years, and made him subject to a 10-year restraining order from the victim.
