‘Gutter stomp’ assault
AN 18-YEAR-OLD who assaulted another woman at the Reef Gateway Hotel will spend the next two years on probation.
Jenny Maree Stevenson and a co-accused, began verbally abusing their victim at the hotel on the night of January 15, the Proserpine Magistrate’s Court was told.
Police prosecutor Elizabeth Smith said they then pulled her hair and punched her in the face several times.
She said Stevenson’s coaccused, who has already faced court, threw a cup of Coke on the victim’s face and spat on her before punching her in the back of her head.
The court was told the victim was kicked in the ribs and face while Stevenson shouted about how she was going to get “gutterstomped tonight”.
In addition to the twoyear probation period, Stevenson was ordered to perform 80 hours of unpaid community service and pay $500 in compensation for the pain and suffering she caused. No conviction was recorded.
