Abuse man may face jail

A MAN who assaulted a woman in an incident of domestic violence has been warned he could be jailed.

When Kevin Helliwell, 36-year-old, of Pewsham Road, Penhill, appeared at Swindon Crown Court he admitted assaulting Martine Brown on Tuesday, May 21.

Colin Meeke, prosecuting, told the court: “It is an unusual case in that the victim has not made a complaint in these proceedings.”

Judge Douglas Field adjourned the case to Friday, January 10 to give the probation service time to compile a pre-sentence report.

He said: “The fact that I am granting you bail should not be taken as any indication of the final outcome of your case.”

He told him he must not have contact with the complainant or go to an address in Pinehurst and co-operate with making the report.

There's no crime in Penhill or Pinehurst according to Phantom Poster.

But of course the criminal in this case won't go to prison, who does our 'learned' friend think he's kidding?

Its Judge Field again so don't be surprised if he gets the most lenient sentence. Any one who hits a woman should be locked up.
