Steel toe boots

Ayrshire Post - - Court -

A 32- year- old man threw a pair of steel toe boots at his part­ner.

Terry Mur­phy, of Cran­d­ley­hill Road in Prest­wick, as­saulted Sarah- Jane Quinn at Hil­lview in Dal­rym­ple on Septem­ber 21.

The brute grabbed her by the neck, threw her to the ground and closed the door on her arm which was wedged in- be­tween the door and the frame.

Mur­phy then launched a pair of boots at her.

Ayr Sher­iff Court heard their seven- year- old son was struck by a knocked over iron­ing board dur­ing the in­ci­dent.

So­lic­i­tor Ian Gil­lies said Miss Quinn’s po­si­tion was “it was out of char­ac­ter”.

Mr Gil­lies added: “It shouldn’t have hap­pened.

“He does con­duct him­self so it won’t hap­pen again.”

Mur­phy must carry out 120 hours of un­paid work and will be su­per­vised for 12 months.
