Just wanted to flag this up here in case no-one else has - and thinking of the poster MrsHenryWinter whose thread is full: metro.co.uk/2016/05/19/man-jailed-for-forcing-girlfriend-to-do-exercise-and-telling-her-what-to-eat-5891524/#mv-a

Really pleased to hear the law is being implemented. Shame his sentence wasnt even longer .

Bastard.

I hope he sees that article "Property of South Yorkshire Police" seems ironic, yet pleasing.

He also strangled her and put a knife to her throat. I'm not sure he would have been jailed if it had not had a physical element.

The sentence on the oercive ontrol charge was 12 months.

2.5 years seems woefully inadequate... I suppose it's a start.
