A Suffolk mother who assaulted a man in a pub resulting in him being blinded in one eye has been warned it is 'highly likely' she will be sent to prison.
Leanne Rowett was captured on CCTV punching and kicking a man after he fell to the ground in The Carlton pub in Lowestoft, Ipswich Crown Court heard.
As a result of the incident, the victim's left eye was badly damaged and he had been left permanently blind in that eye, said David Wilson, prosecuting.
Rowett, 36, of Short Lane, Lowestoft, pleaded guilty to inflicting grievous bodily harm on the victim in July last year.
Adjourning sentencing until September 6, recorder Rex Bryan said it was 'highly likely' she would receive an immediate prison sentence.
