Glass assault ends in jail

Pilbara News - - News - Alicia Per­era

A se­ri­ous glass­ing at the Dampier Mer­maid Ho­tel in 2014 has led to time be­hind bars for a lo­cal woman.

Kristie Jean Neil, 36, of Dampier was sen­tenced to 15 months im­pris­on­ment by the Kar­ratha Mag­is­trate’s Court late last month af­ter she was found guilty of un­law­fully wound­ing an­other woman.

The in­ci­dent stemmed from a ver­bal ar­gu­ment be­tween Neil and the vic­tim that broke out around clos­ing time at the Mer­maid on Satur­day, Novem­ber 15, and es­ca­lated into push­ing while Neil was still hold­ing a glass.

She then struck the vic­tim on the right-hand side of her face with the glass, caus­ing a large cut near the woman’s jaw.

The vic­tim re­quired surgery in Perth for her in­juries.
