A MAN has been fined after assaulting his deaf girlfriend.
Dean Stanton, of Elizabeth Gardens, in Stanmore, Middlesex, appeared before Huddersfield magistrates yesterday.
The court was told how he attacked his partner Siobhanan Keogh at her Dalton home on March 11.
The 21-year-old admitted slapping and pushing her at the property on Brown Royd Avenue after she asked him to return to the shops for her.
Miss Keogh, who has the same disability as her partner, suffered some injuries to her face.
Carole Lawford, prosecuting, said that the couple had a volatile relationship.
She added that Miss Keogh hadn’t requested a restraining order as the couple wished to remain together.
Stanton was given a conditional discharge and ordered to pay £200 costs.
