Single mother hit out with plastic beer glass in Grantham club, court hears

Have your say

A single mother who attacked another woman in the toilets of a nightclub has escaped jail at Lincoln Crown Court.

Chelsea Wilson struck the victim with a plastic beer glass during an incident in the Barcode club, in Westgate, Grantham.

Laura Pitman, prosecuting, said Wilson left her victim with an injury to the back of her head. A scuffle then broke out involving a number of other women.

The victim was taken to Grantham Hospital for treatment to her injury and later released.

Miss Pitman said: “The defendant was arrested at the scene.

“She was interviewed. She said she acted in self defence and said she had not struck any-one with any item.”

Wilson,23, of Hazelwood Drive in Gonerby Hill Foot, admitted assault occasioning actual bodily harm as a result of the incident on February 12, 2011. She was given a 12-month community order with 150 hours of unpaid work.

Judge James Sampson des-cribed the assault as “a nasty attack”.

But he told Wilson: “There has been a considerable delay in this case. That is not your fault. Most important of all you have entered a guilty plea.”

Chris Milligan, defending, said “She is sorry. She has shown over the last two years that she can grow up and behave herself.”
