Four years behind bars for domestic abuse offender
Main article content
On Tuesday, (19 September), Daniel Drew, 30, (DOB 27/07/93) was sentenced to four years imprisonment after being found guilty of multiple domestic abuse offences at Guildford Crown Court.
These included occasioning actual bodily harm and disclosing private photographs. He was also given a restraining order for seven years.
Surrey Police’s Western Domestic Abuse Team investigated Drew’s abusive and coercive behaviour, working closely with the victim who put her trust in the team and helped ensure Drew was held accountable for his actions.
Investigating officer, Chris Searle, said: "Drew subjected the victim to a violent and abusive relationship, of which his actions impacted on her quality of living. Domestic Abuse of any nature has no place within the communities of Surrey and the sentence passed to Drew is well received."
