A jealous boyfriend has been spared jail for grabbing his girlfriend around the throat after accusing her of cheating – while working as an escort.
Christian Piscorak, 31, punched long-term partner Dorota Plorcek (doub corr) in the mouth in a jealous fit of rage before grabbing her by the throat after he became convinced she was earning money as a prostitute.
The couple had been in a relationship for eight years, but Piscorak lashed out after he became convinced she was sleeping with other men, Thanet Magistrates’ Court heard.
Prosecutor Julie Farbrace said: “He was accusing her of sleeping with other men and working on an escort website.
“He was asking her what money she had.
“She tried to run but he hold of his arms and shoulders.
“She was scared he might hurt her.
“He made a fist and said: ‘Shall I punch you? Shall I punch you?'”
She added: “He tried to get her to kneel on the floor.He was shouting about sleeping with other men. He hit her on the lower jaw causing a split lip.
“He took hold of her by the throat and said it was the end of their relationship and he was going to move out.”
Piscorak, of Thanet, Kent, admitted assaulting his partner on February 4.
Speaking through a Polish interpreter he said: “About two years ago we started shouting and fighting. I began to wonder if she was sleeping with my friends.”
He said he was off sick from work one day when one of his friends turned up unexpectedly thinking he was at work.
Piscorak said: “Everyone knew she was sleeping with other men.
“I loved and trusted her – I was shocked and humiliated. I wanted to find out the truth.
“All my friends knew because they were laughing behind my back.”
Piscorak was given a 12 month community order, told to do 75 hours unpaid work and ordered to pay £200 costs plus a £60 victim surcharge.
