Somerton man jailed
Paul Green, of Pearmain Road, Somerton, has been jailed for two years at Taunton Crown Court. Green, aged 40, appeared in court on Thursday 15 December. The court heard how, on Wednesday 25 May, Green and his wife had got into a verbal argument. After the couple went to bed, Green woke the victim and threatened her with a knife. He also covered her face with a pillow. He then left the property but returned later. He started shouting outside the house and only left when police arrived.
Along with his custodial sentence, Green was also handed a five-year prevention from harassment order.
Investigations Officer Louise Savage said: “I commend the incredible bravery and strength it took the victim to come forward. Especially after suffering at the hands of her spouse for so long.”
