A woman who was sexually assaulted and beaten by a man says the vile things he did to her will remain in her thoughts forever.

Jasper Gough has been jailed for what he did to the woman – but not before putting his victim through three years of torture before he admitted it.

He also glassed a man in a nasty pub confrontation during a separate and unrelated incident.

Gough, 26, of Tennyson Road, Cleethorpes, admitted sexually assaulting the woman and a common assault offence against her in May 2015.

He also admitted a separate offence of assault, causing actual bodily harm, against a man out on a friend’s birthday celebration on June 29, 2016.

He was jailed for three years and nine months at Grimsby Crown Court and given a five-year restraining order banning him from contacting the woman and a two-year order relating to the glassing victim.

He was also ordered to register as a sex offender indefinitely.

After the hearing, the woman said: “This whole court case has lasted three long years and, during that time, he has lived a normal, happy life, living in the same town as me and my son while everyone and his family called me a liar.

“Those three years have been torture for me – for him to just turn around and admit the offences three years later, when he could have admitted them at the start.

“But he had to drag out the process as much as he possibly could, as if he hasn’t put me through enough.

“The vile things Jasper did to me will remain in my thoughts forever now.

“Jasper had a controlling violent temper and manipulates people. His family will always defend him, making him always think he isn’t wrong for what he does to women.

“To them, it’s never his fault. It’s horrifying knowing I had to live in a town while a man who sexually abused me and battered me is walking about.

“At times, I felt like the justice system completely failed me.”

Her words came as two victims of the same domestic abuser called for a register identifying offenders to help prevent repeat behaviour in a further relationship.

The victim’s father told the Grimsby Telegraph: “He is disgusting. I can’t explain what it’s done to the family. It’s just been disturbing.”

A spokesman for the Crown Prosecution Service said that the “glassing” happened at the Barracuda bar in Cleethorpes.

Gough used a hard plastic glass as a weapon and pushed it into the face of the victim, who was having a night out with friends for a birthday celebration.

It was believed that the victim had worked as a doorman but was not working in that capacity at the time of the attack.

He is believed to have suffered cuts, bleeding and a chipped tooth.
