A MOTHER who was brutally beaten and had her throat cut by her ex-fiance has to write him regular letters or she will go to jail.
Natalie Allman, 29, was ordered to keep Jason Hughes updated on the lives on their twin sons, after he tortured her in front of them for seven hours.
Ms Allman has to send her attacker three letters a year, along with photos of their five-year-old boys, Sunday People reported.
When the boys were two, they watched their father batter their mum with his dumbbells, slash her throat with an army knife and try to suffocate her with a pillow at their home in Herefordshire, England
Now, the mum of two risks prison for contempt of court if she doesn’t correspond with the monster who subjected her to this sickening attack.
The couple broke up in 2012, with Ms Allman citing his controlling behaviour and heavy drinking. Hughes, 42, was still living in the house until he found somewhere else.
Then the former soldier found out she was seeing someone new. The sleeping mother awoke to him kneeling over her, punching her repeatedly in the face. She passed out and came around at 3am to face another frenzied battering, and another at 6am. He tied her up to stop her escaping, and slit her throat with a knife that missed a major artery by millimetres.
At 7am, she managed to call the police. When officers arrived, the couple’s two-year-old twins were in bed with their mother and covered in her blood.
Incredibly, she survived the horrific attack, which left her with eight wounds to her head and five broken bones in her face. Hughes was sentenced to nine years at Worcester Crown Court in 2012 for malicious wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm.
In January 2014, Ms Allman received his lawyers’ letter demanding to communicate with the children, and in Easter, she found herself in court.
Now, she has to send photos and “an update regarding the children’s general progress, both at nursery/school and socially, to include details of their health and emotional development”.
She fears the contact could encourage Hughes to come and find them — and he could be out by March next year.
This story breaks my heart. To know what this psychopathic person has done to this woman and his children…… is horrific enough.
But, the system – the legal system run by too many psychopathic people itself, is traumatising this woman further by forcing her to write to him.
This man should be in prison for attempted murder … and she should never have to have contact with him again. Or the children have contact with him.
The trauma this man has already subjected them too, is beyond comprehension and is evil at work. Anyone capable of that, does not deserve to be given the opportunity to do it again …. especially to his former victims.
Yes, there will be mental health issues involved in why he did this. Yes, many who come out of the army are really fucked up, and I have empathy for that. I see they are trained to be psychopaths and that is horrible. And what they see in combat etc, fucks them up even more.
But, it was still a *choice* this man made, to torture this woman, in front of children.
And if he’s done it before, he can do it again.
Society is groomed to accept abuse, domestic violence, child abuse.
I see this clearly and it is why abuse of every kind, is increasing.
The lack of wisdom, lack of empathy, in society is astounding. And tragically horrific too.
