Porn-watching thug battered girlfriend after claiming he saw her in x-rated clip

A paranoid thug battered his girlfriend after accusing her of starring in a porn clip he had watched, a court heard.

Stanley Dodds, 54, poured lager over the victim's head, stamped on her and punched the woman repeatedly during the violent attack in March.

Not content with the physical abuse he had inflicted, the thug then drove his partner of 19 years to a bridge and threatened to throw her off into a river below.

Newcastle Crown Court heard how Dodds had been watching porn in March when he came across a video starring a woman he thought was his girlfriend.

The court was told Dodds believed his partner was "one of the women in the video he was watching" and made "bizarre comments" about men "coming over the back fence" when he was out of the house, Chronicle Live reported.

Last year Dodds reportedly saved his girlfriend's life by performing CPR after she'd had a heart attack.

Following the cardiac arrest, Dodd's cared for the woman while she spent four months in a Tyneside hospital recovering.

And prosecutor Ian Cook told the court that the victim believed that Dodds had come to resent his role as a carer, leading to the violent episode.

Describing the attack, Mr Cook said: "There were two punches to the head of the complainant, who was then dragged by the hair to the ground He stamped on her legs."

The court was also told that Dodds began to strike the heart area of the victim's chest where she had a device fitted following her heart attack.

Mr Cook added: "He was saying 'I wish I had never brought you back to life".

After threatening his victim with a knife, Dodds drove her to a bridge on the A19 and warned he would "throw her in the river", then hit her legs with a hammer and hit her head off the steering wheel.

Mr Cook added: "They returned home and the defendant made her stand in the garden for two hours in the cold.

"When she was allowed back in the assault continued, with further punching."

The court heard the victim needed a blood transfusion after the attack and had widespread bruising, with a laceration to her forehead.

Dodds, formerly of Hepburn Grove, Sunderland, admitted assault.

Judge Sarah Mallett jailed him for 22 months and issued a five-year restraining order to keep him away from the victim.

She added that the use of the beer and making the victim stand outside amounted to "degradation and humiliation".

The judge said the attack was "callous ill-treatment designed to humiliate and terrify her" but she accepted Dodds was "very mentally unwell at the time".

Robin Patton, defending, said Dodds was overwhelmed with "delusional illness" and has responded well to treatment since.

Mr Patton added: "The doctors agree that after the attempt to save his partner's life he has reacted with post-traumatic stress disorder.

"He attributes his current mental illness to that event."
