Woman is put under supervison for assault
A Coatbridge woman whose charges included assaulting her ex-partner with a mobile phone has been placed under supervision.
Natalie Steele and the father of her young daughter broke up on bad terms last year.
The 36-year-old admitted to four separate charges involving him, dating back to last August.
Steele, of Pentland Court, appeared from custody.
On August last year, she scratched her ex-partner’s car in Leven Quadrant.
Her next offence took place in March when she behaved aggressively at a property on the same street, banging a door and shouting abuse.
Only two months later, she bit her ex-partner on the arm and two weeks after that assaulted him with the phone.
Her defence solicitor said:“The report deals with everything frankly, their relationship didn’t break down amicably.
“It recommends a rigorous supervision course and she’s more than willing to comply with that.
“She’s sorry she got herself in this situation but it got out of hand.”
Sheriff Frank Pieri said:“On the charge relating to the assault with the mobile phone, you’ll be under supervision for 15 months and there will be a review in three months.
“The three remaining cases are deferred for good behaviour until January 23.”
