A roundup of the people jailed in Gloucestershire in May.
Alec Butt, of Cotswold Mead in Painswick, was jailed for seven years and nine months following an unprovoked attack on his ex-wife.
The 71-year-old hid behind bins near his ex-wife’s place of work in Whiteladies Road in Bristol on Saturday, December 28, 2019 before seriously assaulting her.
While covering his face to hide his identity, he pushed her up against a wall and used a hammer and a screwdriver to inflict significant injuries to her head, arms and hands.
Justyna Witomska, 35, of Downham Way, Bromley, London, jailed for a year for causing the death of a mental health nurse by driving carelessly in the Cotswolds.
The pregnant mum-of-two had no valid licence or insurance when she took her husband’s car without his consent to drive to Hereford, accompanied by her young daughter and niece, on January 26 last year.
The trip was cut short by tragedy when Witomska collided with another car on the A436 Cirencester-Cheltenham road.
Simona Julius, 25, of St George, Bristol, was jailed for eight weeks after damaging a headstone at Westerleigh Crematorium.
Julius daubed white paint over the headstone of 22-year-old Liam Scarman overnight. She also left an unpleasant note for his family and, after publicity about the incident, sent further offensive messages to named family members in Christmas cards.
John Munson, 37, of Gloucester Road, Stroud, received a nine month jail term after pleading guilty to common assault on his former partner and to another attack on a man who hit him with a gym weight.
However, he was released from the dock because he had already spent longer than that in custody awaiting sentence.
