Ipswich: Woman walks free from court after dislocating former partner’s shoulder during argument

IPSWICH: A woman who dislocated her former partner’s shoulder during an argument over maintenance payments has walked free from court after being given a suspended prison sentence.

Abbie Cutts, who is expecting a baby later this month, had seen Shane Livesey with whom she had a child, on Christmas Eve and during an argument they had both ended up on the ground, Ipswich Crown Court heard.

During the melee Cutts had yanked Mr Livesey’s arm causing his shoulder to dislocate, said Robert Sadd, prosecuting.

He later had to have his shoulder reset under an anaesthetic.

Cutts, 29, of Dandalan Close, Ipswich admitted assaulting Mr Livesey causing him actual bodily harm and was given a nine month prison sentence suspended for two years and made the subject of an 18 month supervision order.

Sentencing her Judge Martin Binning told Cutts that if she was foolish enough to commit further offences in the next two years she was likely to be sent to prison.

Rebecca Wastall for Cutts said she was expecting a baby at the end of June and already had another young child. She said Cutts had a problem with alcohol in the past but she had now significantly reduced her alcohol intake.
