A brave sex attack victim has spoken out on national television about how she was subjected to appalling abuse.

Samantha Miller was abused by former partner Sean Johnstone over a two year period.

She began her relationship with Johnstone in 2006, and he soon started to control her life.

Sean Johnstone, 43, of Wharton Terrace, Hartlepool, was jailed for 17 and a half years at Teesside Crown Court two years ago after a jury at Teesside Crown Court returned unanimous guilty verdicts on all 27 counts.

The charges included rapes, indecent assaults and possessing hundreds of images of child pornography and extreme pornography featuring animals.

Sam, 35, decided to waive her right to anonymity and spoke out about her horrendous ordeal on the Jeremy Kyle Show on Tuesday in the hope no one else suffers the kind of abuse she was subject to on a daily basis.

“I need to talk about it to make people realise how bad it can get,” she said.

“When I was pregnant he raped and beat me. I need to do this for myself and others.”

On the show Sam, who moved to Wearside, spoke of how Johnstone held a knife held to her throat and threatened to kill her unless she performed a sex act on his Rottweiler dog and punched her in the stomach while she was pregnant with his child.

Sam told the audience how the attacks were filmed and live streamed on to the internet and how she believes the ordeal was watched by thousands of people.

“He got a Rottweiler and tried to force the Rottweiler to do things that a man would do to a lady at knife point,” she said.

“If you are in a relationship and get a feeling of walking on eggshells, get out. No one deserves to suffer like that. They have to get out now.”
