SUMMERSIDE — A Freetown woman who assaulted man by striking him on the back of the neck was sentenced recently in Summerside provincial court to 18 months probation.

Brittany Lynn Jollimore, 24, pleaded guilty to the assault, which occurred Nov. 15.

Police were called to a Freetown home on that date after a man reported that Jollimore had assaulted him during a heated argument.

In addition to striking him on the back of the neck, Jollimore threw a chair, which struck and damaged the wall, during the incident. There were children presented when the incident happened.

She had no previous record.

Defence attorney Trish Cheverie said the blow struck by Jollimore was an “open-handed slap” and noted that her client is “very remorseful” for her actions.

Judge Jeff Lantz, in reviewing the facts of the case and that Jollimore had no previous record, suspended the passing of sentence and placed the woman on probation for 18 months, during which time she must undergo assessment, counselling and treatment for any mental health or anger issues.

Jollimore was ordered to pay a $100 victim fine surcharge and is not allowed to have any contact with the victim.
