Emily Summers lashed out at the sister of the bride in the smoking area of East Coast Social, in London Road, Southend, after an earlier row on the night of March 18.
Southend Magistrates’ Court heard the victim had to use Photoshop to edit the embarrassing wedding snaps and has since forked out £280 for laser treatment.Lovely!
Simon Samuels, mitigating, said the mother-of-two had no previous convictions, had contacted the police herself after initially fleeing the scene and admitted assault by beating.
He said Summers was in the second year of an Open University law degree and the offence was driven by a growing problem with alcohol.What does she plan to specialise in, personal injury cases?
He said: “This is a case of a young woman taking on too much, too young. She married at the age of 19 and within two years she was a mother-of-two.
“She had a few hours of freedom where the children would be looked after by someone else. Quite simply, she drank far too much alcohol.”But don't worry, the courts will be lenient...
Summers was told to pay £750 in compensation and carry out 200 hours of unpaid work.Not, one hopes, giving out legal advice.
