A 30-year-old man who was arrested after beating his girlfriend so badly he broke her back has been dubbed a “lazy, violent parasite” by a judge who sentenced him this week.
The violent thug, Dallas Mpala from Tunstall, Staffordshire, allegedly beat his girlfriend, 29-year-old Gemma Holland, during an argument, breaking her vertebrae and causing serious bruising.
The judge who sentenced Mpala to three years behind bars, Nigel Daly, told the convicted man, “You do not work and spend your time drinking and taking drugs while sponging off your current partner. You are a lazy, indolent, violent parasite.”
Furthermore, this isn’t the first time Mpala has been jailed for abusing Holland, as back in 2009 he spent time inside for punching her, slapping her, and whipping her with a belt.
At the time of the more recent attack, according to Prosecutor Richard Davenport, who addressed told Stoke-on-Trent Crown Court the following.
He (Mpala) was shouting and screaming. He accused her of sleeping with other men and punched her to her head. She felt incredible pain. He was so angry she feared for her life. He launched himself at her like a wild animal and bit her cheek. She was crying and begging him to stop. He said he wanted to kill her.
In recounting the incident, Holland said, “At first I thought it was a dream – but then I woke up and he was still hitting me. He smashed up my phone, kept punching, kicking and biting me, he smacked my head against the wall and dragged me along the floor. I begged him to stop, and when he let me out to go to the toilet I just ran down the stairs and drove to my friend.”
For his part, Mpala pleaded guilty to assault occasioning actual bodily harm and was jailed for three years, although he will most probably be released early for good behavior as is customary in the UK.
