Drunken Amy Sundve, 30, launched the unprovoked attack outside the Elm Tree pub in Kirkdale after going on a two-day bender to celebrate her birthday. Liverpool Crown Court heard earlier his week how her victim suffered a cut artery and was left with a 7cm scar across his forehead.
Sundve, of Melling Road, Bootle, then attacked his girlfriend, scraping her left eye with the metal-tipped heel and badly injuring her shoulder in a struggle.
The court heard the single mum did not know she was already several weeks pregnant during the incident, which happened at around 2pm on May 22 this year…
She pleaded guilty to unlawful wounding and assault causing actual bodily harm.
Charlotte Pringle, defending, said her client was a young mum who rarely goes out drinking and “went too far”…
Sundve was jailed for 10 months meaning she will give birth to her third child in jail.
Judge Norman Wright said: “He (the unnamed victim) will be left with a permanent scar on his forehead as a memento that will be with him for the rest of his life.
“It is the sort of thing people will look at and stare at. They will ask him ‘how did you get that?’ and he will be reminded of it.”
Judge Wright jailed Sundve for 10 months, meaning her baby will be born in prison. She shouted “oh no please, I can’t leave my kids” and broke down in tears in the dock.
We can be sure that if the perpetrator were a man, and the victim a women, he’d have served a far longer sentence than 10 months. But given that women usually get suspended sentences for violent assaults, it’s a start.
