Woman fined for as­sault­ing love ri­val

The Oban Times - - NEWS -

A 27-YEAR- OLD woman from Tober­mory has been fined £400 for as­sault­ing an­other fe­male af­ter find­ing her in bed with her ex-part­ner.

Emma Den­o­van, of River­side Court, pleaded guilty to pulling the woman out of bed and throw­ing her to the floor to her in­jury.

She also pleaded guilty to be­hav­ing in a threat­en­ing man­ner by shout­ing and swear­ing and throw­ing house­hold items – in this case books.

The in­ci­dent took place in the early hours of October 30, 2016.

Den­o­van ap­peared at Oban Sher­iff Court on Mon­day this week.

Eoin McGinty, procu­ra­tor fis­cal, told the court that af­ter Den­o­van had at­tended a party, she went to her ex-part­ner’s par­ents’ house un­in­vited.

She got there at around 2am and let her­self in. It was then that she saw her ex-part­ner in bed with an­other woman.

She then seized her by the hair and threw her to the floor, re­sult­ing in the vic­tim’s face be­ing scratched with bruis­ing to her arms and legs.

The vic­tim left and Den­o­van was asked to leave, which she re­fused to do. She re­mained in the house and pro­ceeded to shout, swear and throw a num­ber of books within the room.

Den­o­van’s solic­i­tor told the court that the re­la­tion­ship be­tween the man and her had been ‘on and off’ and that they were still to­gether at the time, as far as she was aware. How­ever, they were giv­ing each other some space.

He said that Den­o­van would reg­u­larly let her­self into the house and she did not go there think­ing that he was with an­other woman. He added that she re­gret­ted her ac­tions and was re­morse­ful.

Sher­iff Ruth An­der­son fined Den­o­van £400, which is to be paid within 28 days.
