AN ATTACKER has been ordered to complete unpaid work after an assault on another man in Herefordshire.

Teenager Bradley Haines entered a guilty plea to one count of assault by beating when he appeared before magistrates in Kidderminster in January.


The court heard from Crown Prosecution Service prosecutor Eleanor Peart that the 19-year-old had assaulted a man by beating him in Allensmore, Herefordshire, on June 5 last year.

Haines, who is of Dalesbred Avenue in Kingstone, Herefordshire, was handed a 12-month community order and ordered to complete 100 hours of unpaid work for the offence, with magistrates saying they had taken his guilty plea into account when deciding on the penalty.

He was also ordered to pay compensation of £100 to the victim, and prosecution costs of £135.
