Christopher Potts jailed for six years for kicking his daughter in the head when she tried to stop him from beating up her mum

A dad who kicked his 6 year old daughter in the head when she tried to stop him from beating up her mum in a violent attack has been jailed for six years.26 years old Christopher Potts pleaded guilty to section 18 wounding against his former partner and actual bodily harm against their daughter.

According to Liverpool Echo, The attack, involving the use of an ornament and glasses, took place at a property in Newton-le-Willows on July 3 leaving the woman with multiple injuries to her head and body.

Speaking after yesterday’s sentencing at Liverpool Crown Court, DC Colette Robinson said:
“Potts subjected his former partner to a brutal and sustained assault, which included the use of an ornament and glasses, that left her with multiple injuries to her head, face, torso, legs and arm. Not only did the victim’s six-year-old daughter witness her mother being attacked, she was also kicked by Potts to the head herself when she tried to intervene to protect her.
“This incident has had a profound effect on both the mother and her daughter, both physically and psychologically.
“No one should ever have to suffer in silence, or feel that they are alone. There is a great deal of professional advice and support out there for people in unhappy, unhealthy, confrontational relationships and these are available free of charge.
“Whether you are a man or a woman, you should not have to suffer or endure verbal or physical abuse from a partner or relative.
