Devonshire man jailed for six months

A 44-year-old Devonshire man has been sentenced to six month's imprisonment for assaulting a woman.

Calvin Spence pleaded guilty in Magistrates' Court this morning to assaulting Barbara Munoz and causing her bodily harm.

The court heard that at about 9pm on June 26, Spence demanded bike keys from Ms Munoz.

When she refused he started smoking drugs in her apartment and when she told him to stop, he punched her to the left side of the face and kicked her in the stomach.

Police were called and Spence was arrested, but denied attacking Ms Munoz.

In court today, Spence said: “I didn't mean to hit her, but she kept hitting me.”

He added that Ms Munoz had been his girlfriend for about two years.

Magistrate Khamisi Tokunbo denied Spence's request for a suspended sentence and sentenced him to six months' imprisonment.
