A victim of a sadistic personal trainer has slammed Scotland’s legal system as the thug prepares for his early release from prison.

Record Online revealed earlier today how Michael McCash - known as Mikie - who was caged for a horrific eight-year campaign of domestic abuse is set to be released later this month.

The cocky gym-bunny, 29, is to be freed less than halfway through his jail sentence.

The Dundee thug was labelled a ‘modern-day Jekyll and Hyde’ after subjecting four former girlfriends to shockingly violent attacks.

He was originally jailed for three years in January 2020.

But following an appeal his prison term was reduced from 36 to 27 months, with a supervision order cut to one year from two.

McCash will soon be released less than half way through his 27 month sentence for domestic abuse.

This week his four victims received letters outlining the plan for his release on January 29.

One of them has already spoken out to say “no woman is safe” with him loose on the streets and now another has come forward to criticise law chiefs who cut his sentence.

Speaking exclusively to The Record, she said: “I honestly believe that the system has completely failed us.

“A violent criminal has had his, already very lenient, sentence reduced and now he's served even less by being released after half of that.

“It makes you wonder what goes through the heads of these appeals judges.

“How could you read through a list of violent crimes, such as we were subjected to, read that the person pleaded guilty to them, admitted that he took knives to the throats, stuffed socks in the mouths, kicked, punched, spat on and abused, not one, but four different women and think that deserves any less than what he was originally sentenced with?”

Sick domestic abuser Mikie McCash who was originally sentenced to three years for an eight-year campaign of violence against four women. But this was later reduced on appeal.

The magnitude of McCash’s horrific crimes were laid bare at Dundee Sherif Court in January 2020.

He had originally faced 26 charges of violence and traumatic intimidation and abuse against the brave women.

The court heard how he spat on his victims, head butted and punched them, stuffed socks down their throats, choked them and, in one case, used a pillow to smother one.

In one of the assaults, a victim was rushed to A&E after he bent her arm so far back that a “crack” sound was heard.

He also held a knife to the throat of two women and threatened to kill another by crashing the car he was driving.

Another savage attack was only stopped when McCash’s own father intervened and had an argument with him.

McCash threw a mobile-phone so hard at one of his victims it burst her lip and left a visible outline mark on her chin.

The repeated assaults took place at various addresses in Dundee between 2008 and 2016.

The victim added: “The waiting list for NHS mental health services is longer than the time he served and, in these unprecedented times, we've been locked down in our houses almost as long as he has been locked up behind bars.

“How is it fair and just that we have not been able to get the help that we deserve in the same, short time that he's been in jail? Because, it's no joke that what he put us through has affected us all.”

And she also highlighted McCash’s lack of remorse for what he’s done, adding: “I’d be really interested for him to make a statement of his own and see how he uses that opportunity.

“The last time that he had a chance to speak up, it was all about him. Self obsessed, egotistical Mikie McCash.

“We've never had an apology, just our ears and eyes polluted with nonsense about how he's changed, when we all know he's not changed, he's just played a very good game.”

She spoke up after another victim had reacted to the news by telling us: “People need to be aware of what he is capable of.

“He is a very dangerous person, I don’t think any woman’s safe while he’s on the street.”
