Barnsley Man Has Sentence Reduced After Appeal

Monday November 11 2013

A BARNSLEY man who assaulted his wife has had his sentence reduced following an appeal at Sheffield Crown Court.

Kevin Clark, 51, managing director of Windsor Foods, had his sentence cut to four months in jail, suspended for two years, by Mr Recorder Hill-Baker.

Clark, of Redland Grove, Staincross, was originally jailed for 26 weeks at Barnsley Magistrates' Court after admitting attacking his wife Kimberley.

The attack, which the court heard lasted up to 15 minutes, happened after Clark, Mrs Clark and the man he suspected of having an affair with her had been on a night out at a pub in Hoyland.

After being originally sentenced at Barnsley Magistrates' Court, District Judge John Foster said: "I have recently not heard a worse domestic violence case. This was a shocking assault."

My ex wife beat me whilst I was asleep and knocked me out then run off wi another fella whilst I was at work.... And left me with the kids....what did she get?? About £60k and a £10k car...and I didn't lay a finger on her throughout our relationship of 16years.. So I don't think some people don't know the meaning if justice.

Dirk that is a horrible thing for you to have gone through. Unfortunately the Law doesnt give men the equality that it does to women nor does it when it comes to Fathers.As to everyone else, The article doesnt give a detailed account to what happened or why the sentence was reduced. Who knows maybe she was found out to be lying or embellishing the event and then was backed up by the other guy, we dont know if the guy had his buttons repeatedly pushed. We all have a breaking point (not that I am saying violence is right) Unfortunately everyone is judging this guy based on a small piece of one sided, one persons view point. This is not a fair debate.

Prison means nothing apart from yet another expense to us hard working taxpayers. Just shoot the scum and have done. 3 meals cooked for you per day and an hour free gym a day courteous of us none lazy bastards who actually work for a living

I hope his wife has gone for good. Cos he will beat her again and again and again. Scum like that never change. That is why we have Womens Aid and refuges.

He is a nasty little man, you can ask any anybody who knows him.
truly horrible.

His wife did leave him she didn't deserve his nasty ways

Reply Posted by dave on Saturday June 14 2014 at 06:50
I'm pleased his wife left him, I'm surprised Peter Whitehead didn't sack him.
nobody respects him. Nobody likes bullies.

I can't believe some of the comments on here, you need to be a bit more understanding, poor woman, I thought hitting women was a crime?
