Woman sentenced after drunken glass attack

A Hampton woman was given an eight month suspended sentence for committing ABH after a drunken row in Richmond

<--break->A woman from Hampton has received an eight month suspended sentence for smashing a glass over a man’s head in a local pub last year.

Emma Gavars, 25, of Maison Place, Hampton, pleaded guilty to the charge of ABH from the 7th October 2011, which left her male victim with a visible scar to the head and a loss of confidence.

The Crown prosecutor at Kingston Crown Court said the attack, which was a result of a drunken argument, had left the victim ‘self conscious and wary of people around him’.

Judge Fergus Mitchell described the attack as ‘extremely serious’, and as a result issued Gavars with an eight month sentence, suspended for two years.

Gavars, who has no recollection of the attack because of the amount of alcohol she had drunk, was also ordered to undertake 150 hours community service and a supervision order for two years.

The former personal trainer in Richmond, who was commended for her instant guilty plea and previous good character, was also ordered to pay £500 in compensation to her victim.
