A man has been jailed for ten-and-a-half years for coercive control of his former partner.

Daniel Kane, 53, was convicted of coercively controlling and repeatedly assaulting his partner over a 20-month period.

He also later threatened to send explicit images of the victim to her family if she did not withdraw the charges against him.

In her victim impact statement, the woman told the court she "might be dead or in a vegetative state" if doctors and Gardaí hadn't intervened.

Chief Superintendent Finbar Murphy praised the woman for her courage in coming forward.

Today FM courts correspondent Frank Greaney joined us with more details on the case.
