Weymouth Woman Jailed For Biting Man's Ear

A bank manager is behind bars after biting off part of a man’s ear in Weymouth.

Samantha Williams, aged 28, attacked a 39-year-old Devon man outside the Cutter Hotel on East Street just before 9pm on Friday 13 May 2011.

The victim, who had been celebrating as part of a stag weekend, required treatment at Odstock Hospital. He still receives counselling as a result of Williams’ violence.

Williams, from Weymouth, was convicted of grievous bodily harm on Thursday 23 February 2012 at Bournemouth Crown Court. 

She was sentenced to fifteen months imprisonment at the same court on Thursday 22 March 2012.

The investigating officer, Detective Constable Ed Meanwell, said:

 “I am pleased that this case has now come to a conclusion and I hope that this sentence will help the victim move on from this nasty attack.”

The CPS prosecutor in the case was Desmond Duffy.
