A WOMAN who had no conviction recorded against her name after being found guilty of assault has been cleared of two further alleged attacks.

Nicola Logue had previously been given an absolute discharge for a violent offence.

The 35-year-old and her sister Michelle Logue, 38, had also been facing trial charged with attacking two women on Greenock's Bruce Street.

Her not guilty pleas to both allegations have been accepted by the Crown following discussions with defence lawyer Aidan Gallagher.

Miss Logue's sister pleaded guilty to one charge of repeatedly punching a woman on the head to injury and has been ordered to pay the victim £600 compensation.

Prosecutor Mr Morgan told Greenock Sheriff Court: "The complainer and a friend were at a function.

"She and the former co-accused, Nicola Logue, became involved with each other and were remonstrating with each other.

"The complainer said the words, 'That psycho just attacked me' and it is understood that comment referred to Nicola Logue."

The court heard that mum-of-three and first offender Michelle Logue thereafter attacked the woman.

Fiscal depute Mr Morgan said: "She [Michelle Logue] heard what had been said and she began to repeatedly punch the complainer on the head.

"The complainer and her friend managed to get away and she contacted the police the next day.

"She had scratches on her face and bruising around her eyes."

Defence lawyer Gerry Keenan said: "The complainer referred to her sister as a 'psycho'.

"She said, 'That's my sister you're talking about' and the complainer said she didn't care."

Both sisters had their not guilty pleas to repeatedly punching another woman on the head and striking her on the head with a shoe to injury accepted.

Sheriff Andrew McIntyre told Michelle Logue, of Prospecthill Street: "This is a serious matter.

"You have reached the age of 38 with no previous convictions whatsoever.

"But this is not one of the minor things that comes before the court."
