A ‘dangerous’ offender who left a woman with broken bones in a brutal attack has been jailed for 13-and-a-half years.
Shaun Miller repeatedly punched and kicked the woman who was taken to the Queen’s Medical Centre with four broken ribs, a broken nose, a broken eye socket, two black eyes, a cut to her head and damage to her teeth.
The 38-year-old also smashed the woman’s phone in the incident at his former flat in Main Road, Gedling, on April 22, 2019.
Officers were alerted to the incident after the woman sent a picture of her injuries to a friend.
Miller initially denied the offences, but later admitted causing grievous bodily harm with intent, false imprisonment and criminal damage to a mobile phone on the first day of trial on 15 November 2019.
He was sentenced at Nottingham Crown Court yesterday (Friday 29 November) to 13-and-a-half years – three years of which were part of an extended sentence due to past offences.
Detective Constable Louise Donderici, who led the investigation, said: “The judge has classified him as a dangerous offender as he continues to displays an inability to have relationships with women that are not violent and has an unacceptable attitude towards women who do not conform to his will.
“This is a significant sentence for what was a horrific and brutal attack on a woman. I hope this sentence gives the victim some comfort and sense of justice.”
