JADE Goody's husband could face another jail sentence after he was found guilty of an attack on a taxi driver.

Jack Tweed, 21, of Buckhurst Hill, Essex, denied the offence but was found guilty of attacking Stephen Wilkins in Epping, Essex, last May following a trial at Epping Magistrates' Court.

Sentencing has been adjourned until March 26 so reports can be prepared on Tweed's background but he was warned a custodial sentence would be considered.

Goody's spokesman Max Clifford said she would be upset when she heard the news from court.

It is the second time in six months that Tweed has been convicted of assault.

In September he was given an 18-month jail sentence by a judge at Chelmsford Crown Court after being found guilty of hitting a 16-year-old boy with a golf club. Tweed denied the assault.
