Jeremy McConnell has avoided jail after being convicted of assaulting former girlfriend Stephanie Davis.
Jeremy was given a sentence of 20 weeks in prison for assaulting his ex which was suspended for 12 months, Metro is reporting.
But while he won’t be heading to prison, he didn’t get off scot free.
According to reports, the reality star was ordered to take part in a Building Better Relationships course with the Probation Service.
He must also carry out 20 hours of unpaid work and will undertake 15 days of Rehabilitation Activity Requirements as part of the terms of his parole.
Stephanie was granted a restraining order against Jeremy, who she first met when they appeared on Celebrity Big Brother together in 2016.
“Miss Davis had a number of injuries that were entirely consistent with her evidence including a large bite mark to her arm. I find you have displayed no remorse, not even for the effect of this episode on your young baby,” the judge said, referring to their 7-month-old son, Caben-Albi George Davis.
“If you had just left Ms Davis’ home, and it was her property, none of this would have happened,” they continued, warning McConnell that he would go to prison if he violated his probation terms.
BBC is reporting that the former Hollyoaks actress claim in court during the trail that her ex was “psychotic” and was “going to kill her.”
She also claimed that he allegedly threatened to throw acid in her face during an altercation at their home on March 10 after he was supposedly drunk and on drugs.
