A suspended prison sentence has been given to a Windsor man who hit someone with a hammer after an argument.
Jody Townsend, from Maidenhead Road, was sentenced at Reading Crown Court on Friday, July 11 after pleading guilty to ABH.
The 37-year-old was sentenced to 10 months in prison, suspended for 18 months following the attack in Thames Street of Thursday, December 19.
Townsend walked-up to a man at about 7pm.
After a dispute he produced a hammer from his pocket and hit the victim around the head and legs with it.
It left his victim with a lump on his head and bruising on his legs.
Townsend has also been given a 12 month supervision order and a six month alcohol treatment order.
More than 50 street parties are set to take place this weekend across the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead and the surrounding areas.
An independent report into a Conservative councillor has found a breach of the Royal Borough’s code of conduct in a document seen by the Advertiser.
