A 26-year-old Letchworth man has been jailed after he admitted headbutting, kicking and stamping on an ex-girlfriend in a ‘sustained vicious attack’ in the town.
Danny Braybrooks, of Allison, had initially pleaded not guilty to assault but admitted the charge when he appeared for trial before Stevenage magistrates on Tuesday.
And chairman of the bench Kathryn Greenwood sentenced him to 24 weeks behind bars, also imposing a restraining order to prevent him from contacting the victim.
He was also ordered to pay the woman £250 in compensation.
The court heard that the ‘sustained vicious attack’ had involved the use of his head as a weapon ‘plus kicking and stamping’ – and the bench noted that the offence was aggravated by Braybrooks’ previous convictions.

Braybrooks received some credit from the magistrates for pleading guilty on the day of the trial.
He was not ordered to pay court costs or a victim surcharge after the bench found that compensation to his victim should take priority.
