A PRESTONPANS man found guilty of assaulting his partner following a trial at Edinburgh Sheriff Court has been ordered to carry out unpaid work.

Richard Bonnar grabbed the woman by the head and squeezed it when the pair clashed at an address at Wemyss Gardens, Wallyford.

Bonnar pushed her on the body before pinning her down on a bed and seizing her by the throat.

The 38-year-old, of McGregor Pend, also pushed the woman up against a wall during the violent episode in March. Bonnar had denied the attack but was found guilty of the offence following a trial last month.

He returned to court last Wednesday, where Sheriff O’Grady told him he must complete 200 hours of unpaid work in the community.

Bonnar was found guilty of assaulting the woman at an address at Wemyss Gardens, Wallyford, on March 3.

He was also found to have breached bail conditions by entering Wemyss Gardens on March 4.
