Domestic assault man in court

A YOUNG Worksop man could have to go on a domestic violence awareness course after he admitted assaulting his ex partner.

Robert Pendleton, 23, of Keswick Road admitted assaulting Natasha Whyte on 29th January.

District judge Diane Baker said: “I’m thinking of a domestic violence programme for you. I think you fit the criteria, you have a history of domestic violence with other partners.”

Pendleton was told not to contact Ms Whyte or go to Gladstone Street, Worksop, until he is sentenced on 4th March at Mansfield Magistrates’ Court.

He must also see a drugs worker after testing positive for drugs.
