Woman sentenced for punching man in Carlisle

Carlisle’s West Walls – the scene of Samantha Smith’s violence.

A WOMAN has been handed a suspended prison term for punching a man in the head during violence in Carlisle.

Samantha Louise Smith, 35, admitted affray in the wake of an incident at the city’s West Walls during the early hours of April 23 last year.

Carlisle Crown Court heard victim David Osborne had earlier refused to give money to Smith’s beggar boyfriend in Botchergate. Her now ex-partner had demanded that she accompany him as he followed Mr Osborne.

CCTV then captured Smith striking Mr Osborne in the head with her fist as he turned to face the pair. He was left with facial injuries and had to take a week off work.

At the crown court today (MON), Smith, of Mount Pleasant Road, Carlisle, had a 10-month prison sentence suspended for two years. Judge James Adkin also ordered her to complete a rehabilitation requirement and a four-month night-time curfew.
