A racist British couple who severely beat their teenage daughter after learning of her black boyfriend have been sentenced to prison time.
A teenager beaten by her parents for having a black boyfriend has moved in with him declaring: ‘I love him’.
Jane Champion was attacked by her parents David and Frances Champion after they returned home and found her in a ‘state of undress’ with Alfonce Ncube.
On Monday, Mr Champion was sentenced to 12 months in prison and his wife to nine months after both admitted repeatedly punching the 17-year-old in the face and shouting racist abuse.
Yesterday it emerged that Jane has defied her parents and has moved in with Alfonce in a flat in Swansea while the couple study at the city’s university.
After throwing the waiter out of the house, Mr Champion, 50, grabbed his daughter by her hair and started to hit her, prosecutor Nicola Powell said during the court case.
Boyfriend Aflonce Ncube was subjected to racial abuse and physical assault from Jane’s parents because of his race. ‘He told her she was destroying the family and pushed her out of the door, Champion shouting racist language to describe Mr Ncube,’ she added.
‘David Champion asked his daughter if she was still seeing Mr Ncube. When she told him she was, he punched her in the face,’ said Miss Powell. ‘Miss Champion said she felt huge pain to her left eye but her father then grabbed her by the throat and continued hitting her.’
Mrs. Champion, 47, then began hitting her daughter – causing swelling on her face and lumps on her head – yelling abuse at the teenager saying: ‘You deserve it. It is all your fault.’
Swansea Crown Court was told Mrs Champion said her daughter had ‘brought shame on her family’.
The couple then went in search of Mr Ncube at the Swansea restaurant where he worked.
When they were removed from the premises Mrs Champion continued to bang on the restaurant window.
John Hipkin, defending her husband, said his client knew that it was an ‘abhorrent’ assault, adding: ‘It’s not excusable in any way, shape or form. ‘But the circumstances in which he found his young daughter meant he reacted in a terrible way. Lessons have been learned.’
From the sound of things, these fools are right where they belong. SMH.
