A JEALOUS abuser who embarked on a campaign of coercive and controlling behaviour against his partner has been jailed.

Cameron Evans ‘isolated’ his victim, accused her of infidelity, and made her delete a social media account before hurling abusive insults at her.

After the relationship came to an end he threatened to ‘smash her door in’ and said he would ‘get her before the police do.’

The 27-year-old of Stowford Road, Barton, Oxford, had already admitted one count of controlling or coercive behaviour in an intimate relationship and one count of sending an electronic communication with intent to cause distress or anxiety.

The abuse all took place between September 2018 and April 19 this year.

Outlining the case at Oxford Crown Court today prosecutor Cathy Olliver said Evans began a relationship with his victim in April 2018.

Some months later the abuse began, and he started calling her at work and accusing her of being unfaithful.

Evans became increasingly jealous and the woman had to remove Facebook as when someone 'liked' her photographs he would shout at her.

He went on to 'isolate' the woman from her friends, and called them to check on her whereabouts.

Evans also acted as a 'parasite' with her finances, using her money to buy drink and drugs.

He went on to call her abusive names, saying she was a 'little sly b**ch' and asked if she was seeing other men.

After the relationship ended Evans was threatening to her, saying he would 'beat her up.'

She described the abuse as 'draining' and said she felt 'absolutely terrified' of him.

It was also revealed that Evans has a string of previous convictions, made up of 12 convictions for 17 past offences.

Included in those are offences of violence, and one case involving an ex-partner of assault occasioning actual bodily harm and possessing a weapon in July 2016, for which he was jailed for 32 months.

In mitigation Julian Lynch, defending, said that his client had already spent four months in prison.

He added that Evans had himself witnessed domestic abuse while growing up, and had suffered from anxiety, depression and ADHD.

Sentencing, Judge Maria Lamb said: “I have heard about a litany of unpleasant, overbearing and bullying behaviour towards her for a protracted period of time.

“You drained her, not only emotionally but financially by acting effectively in parasitical behaviour."

Evans was jailed for 18 months, must obey a three-year restraining order and pay a surcharge.
