A mother-of-two who attacked a man outside a popular Isle of Wight pub, twice striking him over the head with a pint glass in her hand after he glassed her father and caused his head to bleed, has been sentenced.

Yvonne Jupe, of Clarence Road, Newport, appeared before Isle of Wight magistrates on Friday, May 17.

At a previous hearing in April, the 34-year-old admitted assault by beating and possession of an offensive weapon in a public place, in Newport, on March 16.

Prosecutor, Liz Miller, said the charges related to an incident outside the Hogshead public house in Newport at around 12.45am.

She said Jupe’s father was glassed inside the pub, and Jupe launched herself at the assailant after he was taken outside by door staff, twice striking him over the head with a pint glass.

She said the weapon did not smash during the assault but when it struck the ground afterwards.

Ms Miller said, in police interview, Jupe admitted attacking the victim. She had been drunk when the offence occurred, and while she did have previous convictions, none were of a like-nature – her last back in 2012.

Rachel Wigley, defending, said Jupe had been out for birthday drinks when her father was attacked, completely unprovoked.

She said she saw her father covered in blood, and on leaving the bar, she spotted the assailant chatting and laughing with door staff.

Ms Wigley said Jupe accepted having the glass in her hand but said the actual impact was with the back of her hand, not the glass.

The court heard the mother-of-two was ashamed of her actions, regretted it every day, and while she had had a few run-ins with the law in her youth, she’d turned her life around.

Ms Wigley said the victim did not support the prosecution’s case and the injuries caused were minor.

She described the assault as a completely isolated incident.

Jupe was fined £500 and ordered to pay costs of £85 and a £200 surcharge.
