Woman sorry for assault

A WOMAN has been given another chance after the Suva Magistrates Court did not enter a conviction against her.

Manjula Devi, who was charged with assault, told the court she would represent herself and entered a guilty plea.

According to the summary of facts, in November last year Mrs Devi walked into the house of the complainant in Vatuwaqa and asked her if she was having an affair with her husband.

The court heard Mrs Devi then proceeded to punch the complainant.

In mitigation, Mrs Devi told the court she was married and had a child to look after, and that she was sorry for her actions.

Magistrate Chaitanya Lakshman told Mrs Devi there were ways other than violence to deal with such matters.

Magistrate Lakshman said Mrs Devi and her husband must understand what happened and ensure they ironed out all matters between them.

Magistrate Lakshman told Mrs Devi not to re-offend as the court conditionally discharged her.
