Oral Sex Woman Appears In Court After Assault

Wednesday July 24 2013

Barnsley Magistrates' Court Barnsley Magistrates' Court

ONE of a couple jailed for having oral sex in Barnsley Interchange has appeared at Barnsley Magistrates' Court after admitting assault.

Jacqueline Holden, 37, and Sam Rowan, 22, were freed and given suspended sentences at an appeal after originally being sentenced to serve 10 weeks behind bars.

Holden, of Oxford Street, and Anna Mary Shaw, 22, of Racecommon Road, Barnsley, attacked Amy O'Neill following a row about drink.

Philip Howard, defending, said the assault happened at a 'get together and chat' attended by Mr Rowan.

He said things turned sour, there was a heated argument and Holden and Shaw attacked Miss O'Neill.

Mr Howard added that the incident had happened after Holden was 'all at sea' after splitting up with another man.

He said: "Miss Holden went out to find new friends. She fell into the company of undesirables and her behaviour deteriorated. She has since cut off contact with those friends and is determined to behave herself.

"She admitted outraging public decency. She and Sam Rowan were seen having oral sex at Barnsley Interchange and they were jailed for 10 weeks.

"Miss Holden and Mr Rowan were released after two weeks in jail on appeal. She found prison a salutary experience and does not want to go back. She suffers from a depressive illness."

Brian Bushell, for Shaw, said his client's part in the attack was limited.

Julie Grant, prosecuting, said each defendant gave different versions of their involvement. She said Miss O'Neill suffered a black eye.

Holden and Shaw, who also admitted assault, were each ordered to do 100 hours of unpaid work and to pay Miss O'Neill £75 in compensation. They were also ordered to pay a £60 victim surcharge and £35 in costs.

Deputy District Judge Richard Manning said he would have thought seriously about jailing the women if he had been in on the case from the start.

He said: "Your behaviour was disgraceful and drinking is no excuse. This girl must have been petrified. To some extent, each of you blame the other.

"Depression is no excuse for avoiding doing unpaid work. It is time you put something back into the community.

"If you do not do the unpaid work, I or someone else will be waiting for you."

She really is all class isn't she?

Vile woman the shame would make most people behave but she probably loves the notoriety. She'll be on Jezza Kyle next.
