Falmouth's Micheal Starling jailed over assaults
7:00am Wednesday 25th September 2013 in News
Michael John Starling has been sent to prison after pleading guilty to two charges of assault.
Starling, aged 31, of no fixed abode, appeared before Truro Crown Court on Tuesday last week to admit assaulting Shane Starling and Katie Mesley in Truro on July 24 this year.
Judge Johnson sentenced Michael Starling to ten weeks in prison on both assault charges, to run concurrently to each other and concurrent to a term imposed on crown court matters. This combination results in a jail term of 14 weeks.
He had been due to appear before magistrates the following day, but the assault charges were withdrawn from this court following his appearance at the crown court.
