A ROSYTH man who twice bit his former partner during months of domestic abuse has been sentenced.

The woman was also threatened and had objects thrown at her by Christopher Hook.

Hook, 32, of Admiralty Road, appeared for sentencing at Dunfermline Sheriff Court.

He admitted that between April 1 and June 25, at Urquhart Crescent, Dunfermline, he engaged in a course of behaviour which was abusive of his partner, he acted aggressively towards her repeatedly, made abusive phone calls to her, made threats of violence and threats to damage property, called her derogatory names, threw objects at her and bit her.

Depute fiscal Laura McManus said that on one occasion in April when the couple were in bed, the woman was bitten in the face.

“She reported that it had been very painful. She told him never to do that again but he did so on a second occasion. She had a sore face and sent a photo of the bite mark to a friend,” added the depute.

On other occasions he had called her a “slut”, said she was “disgusting” and threatened to smash up her home if she contacted the police about him.

However, she did contact the police. Hook then sent a voicemail calling her “a slut” and “a slag”. He also accused her of giving him a sexually transmitted disease.

Other incidents included Hook throwing a plant pot and a bottle at her window. He also threw a bottle of beer at her TV set and another bottle at the woman.

Defence solicitor Chris Sneddon said: “She cheated on him and goaded him about this with her friend.”

Sheriff Charles MacNair imposed a community payback order with 150 hours of unpaid work and a two-year non-harassment order.
