Matthew Thomas McNee, 31, of Tennyson Road in Louth, has been handed a six week prison sentence after he pleaded guilty to assaulting a woman in December last year - but he is already in prison on a seven year sentence after pleading guilty to another assault in June.

As reported previously, McNee inflicted grievous bodily harm upon a man in Newmarket, Louth, during an unprovoked attack last year.

On Wednesday November 12, McNee pleaded guilty to assaulting a woman in Mount Pleasant Avenue, Louth, at Lincoln Magistrates’ Court and was handed the additional six week sentence due to the seriousness of the offence.

However, McNee’s new six week sentence will be served concurrently, which means that McNee will not spend any additional time in prison.

McNee was also handed a restraining order on conviction which forbids him from contacting the victim.

Two separate charges, relating to an additional assault and disorderly behaviour, were dismissed in light of his 
guilty pleas.
