Worcester domestic abuser jailed for over four years

Worcester Editorial 22nd Aug, 2023   0

A WORCESTER domestic abuser who assaulted his former partner over four months has been jailed for more than four years.

Gregg Mosedale, 32, was convicted at Worcester Crown Court on Monday (August 22) for four counts of actual bodily harm and criminal damage.

He was also handed a ten-year restraining order preventing him from approaching his victim.

The court heard he caused his ex-partner bruising by kicking her in the torso on one occasion.

He also repeatedly punched and kicked her on two further occasions causing bruising to arms, legs and black eyes and a split lip by elbowing her in the face.

Mosedale was also found guilty of actual bodily harm for kicking his victim’s legs from out under her in a playing field, dragging her by her hair and punching her to the chin resulting in bruising.




He also got a criminal damage conviction for breaking two light switches in her flat by punching them.

The court heard Mosedale has a history of domestic violence abuse with previous partners.


The judge said Mosedale, who was sentenced to four years and three months in prison, was a danger to women and any woman who entered a relationship with him.

Det Insp James Bamber, of Worcester Protecting Vulnerable People team, said: “I welcome the sentence passed to Mosedale and hope this sends a message out to all victims and survivors of domestic abuse that we will support them.

“I hope the bravery of his victim will encourage others who may find themselves in a similar position to come forward and report them to us.

“Both we, the police, and the courts take any reports of domestic abuse very seriously.

“Anybody who contacts us will be listened to and anyone concerned about a loved one or themselves should call us too.”
