A NINETEEN-YEAR-OLD woman who pleaded guilty to being drunk and disorderly and assaulting a policewoman has been made to do unpaid work.

Macy Farrimond admitted to committing the offences on December 29 last year in a previous hearing at Wigan and Leigh Magistrates' Court.

Farrimond, of Chisworth Close, Leigh, had pleaded guilty to a charge of being drunk and disorderly on Elliot Street in Tyldesley.

She also indicated a guilty plea to an assault by beating of an emergency service worker, namely a woman constable who was acting in the exercise of her functions as a police officer.

Farrimond appeared to be sentenced at the court on September 1 and she was given a community order.

The 19-year-old must do up to 15 days' rehabilitation activity and carry out 300 hours of unpaid work over 12 months, the maximum the court could impose.

A court document says the sentence of 300 hours unpaid work "has been uplifted due to the assault being on an emergency worker" from 150 hours.

Farrimond was also ordered to pay £150 in compensation.
