AN ATTACKER has avoided being sent straight to prison after assaulting two people.

Charlotte Rosemary Adams appeared before magistrates for sentencing in January after entering guilty pleas to one count of racially or religiously aggravated assault by beating and one count of assaulting an emergency worker by beating at an earlier hearing.

The court heard from the prosecutor that the 37-year-old, of Deans Swift Close, Ross-on-Wye, had assaulted a man by beating in Gloucester on June 1, 2022.


The offence was racially aggravated, magistrates in Cheltenham were told.

She had also assaulted a police constable who was acting in the course of his duties in Gloucester on the same date, the court heard.

Adams, who was represented at the hearing by defence solicitor Ms C Robinson, was handed a 12-week prison sentence, suspended for 12 months, with magistrates saying that the aggravating features of the offences uplifted the sentence from a community order to imprisonment.

She was also ordered to pay compensation of £100 to the police officer, £50 to the other victim, prosecution costs of £85 and a £154 victim surcharge.
