Former soap star MARTIN LYNES has sat in court in prison greens as the former partner he sexually and physically assaulted at a BATEAU BAY property in 2015 and 2016 read her victim impact statement.
In it the 51 year old was portrayed as a monster, as the woman, who can't be named, relived her story.
'He had a wild look in his eyes, as he beat me, violated me, bit me and bashed me' she said. 'I thought I was going to die that night. The memories of his depraved acts of violence still haunt me every day and every night.'
LYNES, who is being held in protective custody, will be sentenced on November 24.
