Our thanks to hequal for this. As usual with such pieces involving mothers, the headline and content refers to her being a “mum”. Surely the only people who call women “mum” are their own children? Extracts:
A mum-of-four left a man with a permanent scar on his forehead after hitting him hard with a 4in stiletto heel on a night out.
Single mum Louise Kenny, who works for the NHS, struck Adam Welch with her silver shoe and left him bleeding after he told her to walk away from an argument…
Lowri Wynn Morgan, prosecuting, said Kenny got involved in an argument with someone she did not know and Mr Welch tried to calm things down.
Kenny was caught on CCTV holding her shoe with the heel pointing outwards and lunging at the victim’s face.
His brother took him to A&E at Nevill Hall Hospital where they had to wait for six and a half hours. [J4MB: Presumably they had to wait until all the women had been attended to.]
Sentencing her at Cardiff Crown Court, Judge Tracey Lloyd-Clarke said: “All he remembers is blood running down his face and into his eyes.”…
He said he gets shooting pain around the scar and had to miss work to attend medical appointments. He is also unable to work normally due to dizziness.
Police arrived at the scene and, when she was arrested, Kenny said: “My kids. What about my kids?”
She said later said to an officer: “I can’t believe he wants to take me to court for this. It was his fault for getting involved. He deserved it.”…
The defendant said her behaviour was out of character and she would have gone home if she was sober. [J4MB: Wow. Just wow.]
Prosecutors said she had two previous convictions – both offences against the person – dating back to 1995 and 2011. [J4MB: So her behaviour was NOT “out of character”.]
Kathryn Lane, defending, handed the judge a letter from Women’s Aid [J4MB emphasis – a charity with a declared mission to reduce domestic violence against women, supporting a violent woman] and said her client was in an abusive relationship at the time. [J4MB: You never hear this defence when a man assaults someone. Do courts ever check the veracity of such claims, anyway? My hunch is they simply accept them, because it’s a well-known fact that women never lie.]
Kenny was jailed for eight months.
If everyone who read this gave us £10.00 – or even better, £10.00 or more, monthly – we could change the world. Click here to make a difference. Thanks.
