Siblings assault ex partner

SENTENCE has been deferred on a brother and sister who both pled guilty to assaulting a woman in June this year when they appeared at Lerwick Sheriff Court on Thursday.

The court heard that 31 year old Colin Woodworth, of 4 Park Wynd, Sandwick, pushed his girlfriend against a wall at Lerwick’s Hayfield House and struck her on the body when she told him their relationship was over.

Woodworth’s sister, 38 year old Julie Walterson, of Goodlad Crescent, Lerwick, then punched her on the head to her injury. Walterson committed the offence while she was on a deferred sentence for a year.

Sheriff Graeme Napier said he would sentence the pair on 17 November after social enquiry, community service and restriction of liberty reports had been compiled.
