6:00pm Thursday 6th September 2012 in News
A 35-YEAR-OLD woman used a screwdriver to cause over £3,000 of damage to a car during a violent outburst during which another woman suffered a slight puncture wound to her side.
Blackburn magistrates heard Debbie Anne Grant had been drinking all day after a meeting with Social Services and blamed the car owner for the unfavourable outcome. Grant, of Moorgate Street, Blackburn, was convicted after trial of damaging the car belonging to Elliot Smith, using threatening behaviour towards him and assaulting Emma Scholes.
She was made subject to community supervision for 18 months with a six months alcohol treatment requirement and ordered to pay £200 compensation to Miss Scholes and £100 compensation to Mr Smith.
Her sister, Victoria Hosker, 28, of Saint Leonard’s Street, Padiham, was convicted after trial of assaulting Mr Smith and damaging a T-shirt. She was given a conditional discharge for 12 months and ordered to pay £40 compensation and £100 costs.
