A LAWYER for a man accused of assaulting a female occasioning her actual bodily harm has entered a guilty plea on behalf of the defendant.
The defendant is Ryan Christopher John Hatton (37), with an address given as Glenarm Court in Ballymena.
The charge relates to February 16 this year.
A prosecutor told Ballymena Magistrates Court on Thursday, which was sitting in Antrim, the charge concerned a “domestic matter”.
She said the defendant had a record.
The defence lawyer said a pre-sentence report would “definitely” be needed and the case was adjourned to September.
