Woman free after hitting pregnant woman with fan
A WOMAN who attacked a six months pregnant woman with a broken pedestal fan, hitting her in the stomach, has avoided time behind bars.
The case in the Ipswich District Court followed a fight in Goodna last November 22 between two neighbouring families across the street from each other.
Ivy Ann Williams, 38, pleaded guilty to armed assault occasioning bodily harm, possessing methylamphetamines and supplying methylamphetamines.
Abusive taunts flew - some racial - and two men began to fight, the court heard.
Judge Deborah Richards sentenced Williams to nine months jail for assault and six months for the drug charges. The sentence was immediately suspended for two years.
The unimpressed victim's husband asked was the message "that it's okay to bash unborn kids and walk free from court?"
