Fair Oak man jailed after children see attacks
10:30am Wednesday 6th February 2013 in News
A FAIR Oak man has been jailed for two sustained assaults on women in front of young children.
Adam Staples, 22, admitted attacking Sarah Janet McConnachie and Lacey Bryan on November 24 last year, magistrates in Basingstoke heard.
District Judge Philip Gillibrand jailed Staples for 12 weeks, saying the offences were exacerbated by the presence of two young children, with one two-year-old becoming involved.
The judge said there had been a lack of honesty and remorse shown to one victim which ruled out a community order.
