A 25-year-old woman who assaulted a 15-year-old girl with a bottle has been jailed for seven and a half years.

Ashleigh Slack, of Lime Grove, Darley Dale was sentenced at Derby Crown Court on Wednesday, November 8 after being found guilty of grievous bodily harm with intent and actual bodily harm.

The offences took place on Friday, September 29 this year when Slack attacked the girl with a wine bottle, causing life changing injuries. Moments later Slack also assaulted another 16-year-old girl, causing minor injuries. Both assaults happened at Dene Fields Recreation Ground, in Lime Tree Road, Matlock.

Detective Constable, Gary Thomas said:

“This was a particularly vicious assault on a young girl and the level of force used was sickening. It has left the victim scarred for life.

“I want the public to know that we will do everything in our power to bring people like this to justice. The sentence handed down by the courts should act as deterrent to people who commit such a crime whilst intoxicated. This shows that the courts will not accept alcohol as some form of mitigation.”
