10 months for Oban man who attacked friend
AN OBAN man has been sentenced to 10 months for a ‘vicious attack’ on his friend at the Rockport Hotel on Boxing Day last year.
Damien McAuley of Kinlochan, Ardconnel Road, Oban, pleaded guilty to assaulting Alexander McLeish by repeatedly punching him in the head, Oban Sheriff Court heard on Tuesday July 5.
The 24-year- old also admitted assaulting his ex-partner after an argument, by pushing her through a door at a house on Miller Road on April 30, 2016, while he was on bail.
Sheriff Ruth Anderson imposed a custodial sentence, ‘given [McAuley’s] record and the nature of the assault’, of 10 months for the more serious and ‘vicious attack’, and 30 days for the lesser assault.
Both sentences are to run concurrently from Tuesday July 5.
