A HEREFORD woman who assaulted her victim by beating has been sentenced and handed a restraining order.

On October 4 last year, Jessica Nash, 32, was said by prosecutor Owen Beale to have attacked another woman in an assault by beating.

The incident took place in Hereford.

Nash pleaded guilty to one count of assault by beating.

Nash, of Monnow Crescent, Hereford, appeared at Hereford Magistrates’ Court on June 4, where she was handed a community order and a restraining order.


The community order will mean she has to comply with instructions of a responsible officer and attend appointments with the officer or someone else nominated by them. She must complete up to 20 days of rehabilitation activities with the probation service.

She was also ordered to pay a fine of £50, prosecution costs of £85 and a victim surcharge of £114. She was not ordered to pay compensation as it was said this may “inflame the situation” with the victim.

She has also been handed a 12-month restraining order.
