A HADDINGTON man who assaulted his former partner by punching her to the face has been admonished.

Tyler Bodycomb struck the woman whereby she fell to the floor to her injury at his home address at the town’s Kirk View on February 3.

The 28-year-old had appeared in court earlier this year and admitted the assault in front of Sheriff Michael O’Grady and sentence was deferred for him to be of good behaviour.

Last Tuesday, Sheriff Wendy Sheehan was told he had stayed out of trouble since the incident and admonished him.
