A "DANGEROUS" woman who viciously attacked a single mum with a bottle, leaving her scarred for life, has been jailed for 40 months.
Mother-of-three Lisa Connor, 28, set about Sasha Hastie after she claimed the victim had insulted her at an Accrington house party.
Ms Hastie suffered 11 separate wounds, two of them to her face, which resulted in visible permanent marks, Burnley Crown Court heard.
The court was told how the defendant had led a law-abiding life until about two years ago but had developed a drink problem and gone off the rails.
Connor, of Countess Street, Accring-ton, admitted wounding with intent to do grievous bodily harm.
Judge Simon Newell said a probation officer had assessed the defendant as being dangerous and he did not disagree as Ms Hastie could have lost an eye.
He continued: "Whatever she may have said, nobody warrants being treated like that. That must have been a nasty, sustained and very violent attack upon her."
Stephen Parker, prosecuting, said the 19-year-old victim had left the second of two parties she had been to in the early hours of 5 July.
She was making her way home when the woman who had held the second party came running out of the house shouting: "Did you call me a slag?"
Ms Hastie said she hadn’t but the defendant started hitting her repeatedly with the bottle about the face and head as both stood in the middle of Countess Street.
The victim began to walk away and couldn’t remember anything else. The defendant then ran at her again and started punching her.
Mr Parker said the next thing the victim recollected was knocking on her mother’s door.
She was taken to hospital where it was found she had multiple cuts including a slash to her back. She had to have 59 stitches. Her mother had found her with blood all over her face and chest, crying and very upset.
The prosecutor added: "The defendant was arrested the following day and exercised her right to remain silent. At the time she was subject to a 120-day prison term suspended for 12 months."
Clare Thomas, defending, said Connor had had a drink problem over the last two years and that had been spiralling out of control.
Connor had already missed a lot of her children’s lives and that was causing her a great deal of stress.
The barrister added: "She is thoroughly disgusted, thoroughly ashamed and she assures the court there will be no repeat of any such behaviour that will bring her to the attention of the court or the police in future."
