A Prestonpans woman who assaulted her partner by battering him over the head with a phone has had her sentence deferred for her to attend counselling.
Lisa Buchanan (39) launched the attack on partner Bruce Buchanan on July 10 at Goosegreen Place, Musselburgh. Buchanan, 60 High Street, had finally admitted to throwing liquid over Mr Buchanan and repeatedly hitting him with the phone to his injury and disfigurement moments before her trial in September.
She appeared for sentencing at Haddington Sheriff Court last Wednesday and had her sentence deferred for six months. The court was told the couple are now back together again, though they are not living together yet, and that she was now attending counselling once a week.
Sheriff Braid deferred for Buchanan to carry on with her counselling sessions and for her to be of good behaviour.
