Sent to prison

Dumfries & Galloway Standard - - NEWS -

A 25-year-old woman who threw a glass and its con­tents which struck an­other woman in a Dum­fries pub on the head to her se­vere in­jury, has been jailed for six months.

Jade Len­nox, of Fri­ars’ Ven­nel, Dum­fries, ad­mit­ted com­mit­ting the as­sault at the Stag bar in the town’s Bank Street last month.

The court was told that she was with two oth­ers at the pub and fol­low­ing a dis­pute over fam­ily mat­ters had moved to an­other ta­ble.

She then re­turned a short time later and dur­ing a con­ver­sa­tion picked up the glass and threw it at the other woman strik­ing her on the side of the head.

The vic­tim was taken to hos­pi­tal with a cut which was glued shut.

A so­lic­i­tor said Len­nox was re­ally sorry for what she did.

Sher­iff Brian Mo­han stressed that an as­sault with a glass was se­ri­ous and with Len­nox hav­ing pre­vi­ous con­vic­tions there was no al­ter­na­tive to a prison sen­tence.

■ A man and a woman have been ac­cused in court of driv­ing off from po­lice at speed and dump­ing pack­ages be­lieved to con­tain con­trolled drugs by throw­ing them from the ve­hi­cle.

Yas­min Mor­gan, 23, of Gables View, An­nan Road, Gretna, and 24-year-old Cameron Thom­son, of Lady Street, An­nan, faced a charge of at­tempt­ing to per­vert the course of jus­tice in June.

It was al­leged they drove off at speed from a po­lice­man who had iden­ti­fied him­self and in­structed them to stop and un­lock their doors, and evaded him by driv­ing at speed through streets in Kirkcud­bright.

They were also ac­cused of be­ing con­cerned in the sup­ply­ing of heroin at Gretna.

Mor­gan pleaded not guilty and trial was set for Fe­bru­ary while the case against Thom­son was con­tin­ued without plea for three weeks.
