Compensation of �200 for woman hit with a kettle
A WOMAN has been awarded �200 compensation after being hit over the head with the base of a kettle by her brother-in-law.
The assault happened in the woman’s kitchen, after she and Pavel Krzyzelewski had traded insults, a court was told.
Krzyzelewski had earlier loaned a computer to his brother and sister-in-law, and that had been damaged, causing tension in the family, prosecutor Nicola Rice explained at Wisbech courthouse.
“He hit her to t he left side of the jaw with the kettle,” prosecutor Nicola Rice told District Judge Ken Sheraton. “She suffered pain to the jaw, and a head ache.”
At an earlier hearing, Krzyzelewski, 29, of Church Mews, Wisbech, had admitted assault and failing to attend court on July 6.
He was given a 200-hour unpaid work order and must also pay �85 costs.
“Had it not been for your guilty plea, I would have considered a prison sentence,” he was told by the judge.
