Woman warned she could be jailed following violent incident at her home

Carlisle Crown Court

A WOMAN who admits an assault and behaving violently following an incident at her Wigton home has been warned she could be sent to prison.

Michelle Stirling, 45, admitted two offences when she appeared at Carlisle Crown Court earlier today (TUES).

Stirling pleaded guilty to assaulting Phillip Strike, and also one charge of affray. Both crimes were committed on March 5.

Her lawyer, Karen Tunnacliffe, told the court: “She is a woman who suffers from a number of problems which she is receiving assistance for.”

The case was adjourned by Judge David Potter, who asked for a probation service pre-sentence report to be prepared. Stirling, of East End, Wigton, was granted bail, and is due to be sentenced at the crown court on October 22.

“In adjourning this case I give no indication as to what the sentence will be,” Judge Potter told her. “All options shall remain open, including immediate custody.”
