A YOUNG mum was subjected to a horrific attack from a vicious ex who she says had her wrongly arrested for smuggling cocaine into the US.
But she outsmarted the thug by recording his disturbing phone calls, leading to him being jailed for the sickening violence.
Now the 28-year-old has bravely spoken out about the horrific ordeal to encourage others to do the same.
Catherine said the 36-year-old bully from Liverpool was jealous and controlling throughout their relationship.
She first broke up with him after he attacked her while she was sleeping with her eight-year-old son over Christmas last year.
