A man from Banbury who kicked and punched a woman has been jailed. James Hampton launched the attack despite being under a restraining order. At around 1.30pm on April 15, the victim, a woman in her 30s, called police as Hampton had breached a restraining order by attending her address.
Officers found Hampton at the address with the victim and arrested him. Thames Valley Police said Hampton also kicked and punched the victim on February 15 and April 15, causing bruising. Sergeant Sarah Nash said the force “takes violence against women and girls extremely seriously”.

“The strength and the bravery of the victim to face her abuser and give evidence in court is truly humbling. I hope the sentence allows her to move on with her life.” Hampton, 39, of Bankside, was sentenced to a year in prison and a two-year restraining order upon his release at Oxford Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday, June 8.
He was found guilty of two counts of assault and three counts of breaching a restraining order after a trial.
