North Wales Weekly News - - NEWS -

A MAN ac­cused of twice punch­ing a Pole in a pub then smash­ing a pint glass over his head re­ceived a twelve weeks sus­pended jail term yesterday.

Adam Porter, 30, of Up­per Mostyn Street, Llan­dudno, who has a home im­prove­ments busi­ness, must also carry out 200 hours un­paid work and an ex­clu­sion or­der bans him from li­censed premises at the town for a year.

He ad­mit­ted com­mon as­sault on David Madja last April. CCTV footage of the at­tack was shown to mag­is­trates at Llan­dudno.

They or­dered Porter to pay £380 costs.

Pros­e­cu­tor Ju­lia Gal­ston said Mr Madja was sit­ting with a col­league in the Kings Arms pub at Llan­dudno when he was as­saulted. He had sev­eral cuts and was taken to Ys­byty Glan Cl­wyd but dis­charged him­self be­fore re­ceiv­ing treat­ment.

Porter told po­lice he had been very drunk and couldn’t re­call us­ing the glass as a weapon.

Mrs Gal­ston added that the de­fen­dant was banned from Llan­dudno pubs and had been es­corted from the Kings Arms be­fore he re-en­tered the bar.

“He has pre­vi­ous con­vic­tions in re­la­tion to vi­o­lence,” the pros­e­cu­tor re­marked.

Court chair­woman Manu Pa­tiar told Porter: “The at­tack was un­pro­voked and it was for­tu­nate the com­plainant didn’t sus­tain lifethreat­en­ing in­juries. You used glass as a weapon.”
