PORN PREDATOR; Butcher who blackmailed wife with sex video is jailed.

Byline: BRIAN ROBERTS

A SEX-MAD butcher who blackmailed his ex-wife with a porn video he made of her in a group romp was jailed yesterday.

A judge branded Julian St Quinton - who also admitted a sex attack on a 16-year-old - a "predator" towards women and an "Olympic standard" hypocrite.

St Quinton, 33, had threatened to send the explicit video to his ex-wife Samantha Stone's millionaire parents during a divorce dispute.

But he still refused to accept that he was to blame for what happened, the court heard.

Judge Tom Cracknell said that was "utterly grotesque".

St Quinton married Samantha when she was 19 and persuaded her to join in sex sessions with other couples they met through contact magazines.

He videoed her having five in a bed sex - and other scenes showed her in lesbian sessions involving a pot of strawberry yoghurt and "intercourse involving a cucumber", the trial earlier this year was told.

When their four year marriage ended he threatened to send the film to her parents and colleagues unless she dropped demands for an equal share of their pounds 85,000 home in Easington, East Yorks.

Samantha, now 26, had wept as she told the jury of the sex sessions: "I knew what I was doing. I did it to keep him happy. I craved love from him but he didn't show me any."

She called police after a mystery woman phoned and said: "Get your solicitors to back off. I know what he's got. I've seen the video."

St Quinton also phoned her "and said things like, 'I would back off if I were you. You know what I have and what I can do with it'."

Judge Cracknell jailed St Quinton for two and a half years for blackmail, saying: "You have shown no remorse and fought this case, making wild and groundless allegations.

"You raked up as much muck as you could to embarrass your ex-wife.

"Blackmail is an ugly, serious and loathsome offence."

He added: "You have shown hypocrisy of Olympic standards. You are cocky and arrogant."

The judge also jailed St Quinton for nine months - to run after the first sentence is finished - after he admitted indecently assaulting a 16-year-old girlfriend.

Prosecutor Patrick Palmer told Hull Crown Court that St Quinton was so obsessed with his ex-wife he made the teenager cut her hair like Samantha's and dress like her.

Sex with the girlfriend became increasingly accompanied by violence and this had led to the indecent assault, he said.

The teenager's mother had confronted St Quinton and her enquiries had brought the matter to the attention of the police.

Paul Genney, defending, said the relationship had continued for eight months after the indecent assault, adding: "It was clearly not uppermost in her mind."

The judge told St Quinton: "As far as women are concerned, you are something of a predator. You used your undoubted charm to manipulate this girl." St Quinton showed no emotion apart from raising his eyebrows as he was sentenced.

But there were gasps from his family in the public gallery.

Samantha, who was also in court, did not show any emotion as he was sentenced and left without comment.

After the case St Quinton's father Stafford, 60, said there would be an appeal.

He added: "There is a lot more to this than people realise."
