06/03/2017

Jonathan Hunt has been jailed for three years at Hull Crown Court today after pleading guilty to breaching a restraining order, putting a person in fear of violence, assault by beating and dangerous driving.

Hunt, who has previously used a number of aliases, including Lynx Caan, has previous convictions including rapes, threatening behaviour, possessing a knife and harassment.

Dawn Birkett, from the CPS said: "Jonathan Hunt clearly poses a very serious danger to women. He is a coward and a bully who has terrorised his former partner with extremely violent threats and intimidation, as well as physical assaults, after he would not accept that their relationship was over.

"I would like to commend her for her bravery in coming forward and giving evidence against him, which  means that Hunt is now facing a substantial prison sentence. I hope this is of some comfort to her, and an encouragement to any victims of domestic abuse to report any matters to the police. Crimes of violence against women a very high priority for the CPS and we will prosecute all such cases with vigour."
