    Wife rips open husband’s scrotum, blinds him in one eye, beats him: no jail time

    Wife ripped open husband’s scrotum by lifting him up by his testicles using her fingernails

    http://metro.co.uk/2016/08/01/wife-r...#ixzz4GHOtq4BA

    A woman ripped a hole in her husband’s scrotum when she picked him up by his testicles during a row.

    Andrew Collings was left with a 2″ by 1″ hole in his scrotum after the attack at the hands of his now ex-wife Catherine Collings, 51.

    During a campaign of violence against her ex-husband, Collings also left him blind in one eye after poking his eyes with her fingers.

    And on the day she ripped a hole in his scrotum, she beat Mr Collings, who lost a leg in a car crash when he was 20, with his crutch.

    Despite the string of horrific violence, Collings has avoided jail, having been handed a suspended sentence at Exeter Crown Court.

    Mr Collings was left in ‘excruciating pain’ after the attack on his genitals left him with a ‘burning pain consistent with a nerve injury’.
    But he did not seek medical help to stitch up the wound because he wanted to protect his wife.

    Prosecutor Jonathan Barnes said the couple had been married for 30 years and had a number of grown up children.

    He said police became involved when Mr Collings went to hospital in April 2014 with a dislocated lens in his left eye – and his right eye was also damaged.

    He told the surgeon he had fallen into a hedge but later told the truth when the medic said ‘blunt trauma’ had been used on both eyes.

    Mr Collings said she wouldn’t stop her attacks because ‘she was enjoying it’.

    In a police interview, Collings, from Torquay, Devon, admitted she had attacked her husband but said it was ‘not one-sided’.

    She confessed to grabbing him by his genitalia but said he ‘had provoked her’.

    Kevin Hopper, defending, said Collings suffered from anxiety and personality disorders, adding: ‘These are nasty and deeply unpleasant offences.’

    Collings pleaded guilty to two charges of inflicting grievous bodily harm and three counts of causing actual bodily harm.

    Recorder Simon Levene said: ‘You have admitted five offences over a prolonged period against a victim, your husband, already grievously disabled.

    ‘In effect he has lost the sight in one eye as a result of a series of assaults which are unforgivable.

    ‘I will treat you as a man inflicting this damage on his wife – very very severe injuries indeed.’

    She was handed a two year jail sentence suspended for two years

    An indefinite restraining order was made banning her from any contact with her ex-husband.

    This is the saddest sentence in the whole article. That's what society thinks.

    When it says suspended for two years, does that mean she is going to jail in two years, or just that if she commits any crimes within that time she will then get jail? Either way, how the fuck can she not get jail time for assault of that caliber?

    Never forget that Trump supporters feel "fiery partisan passion" when an accused rapist is being forced onto the Supreme court. Deplorable to the end.

    Suspended sentence doesn't mean she doesn't go to jail. Just that there will be a 2 year delay before she is shipped to prison for 2 years (basically, to put affairs in order).

    So click-bait title is a lie.

    Otherwise, it would be nice if a non-tabloid had information on this story instead of the equivalent of the National Enquirer to verify some of those details.

    In the USA, she would also be charged with injury to a disabled person. She should get at least 10 years just for the serious bodily injury, on top of the spousal abuse charges.

    As much as I love the narrative of poor oppressed men and that women can walk free from all crimes, there is a lot of information that isn't there as to why the actual sentence isn't larger.

    How did she game the system? Was it laws or the judge that did this?

    Wrong on all counts unbound.

    Sorry but you're wrong, a suspended sentence is (as said above) where you do community work and avoid jail unless you offend again.

    ^Pretty much this. I can't find the story anywhere else. Even then, the details are moot and exaggerated to begin in the article. Very click-baity, indeed.

    What? Suspended sentence means that she is on trial for 2 years, if she won't offend again in that period, she won't go to jail at all.

    Please don't spread lies, that's not what suspended sentence is at all.

    2 years is not enough for that crazy bitch. Hospitalize her, she's obviously mental.
