200 hours of work for woman who attacked her love rival

Have your say

A Thai woman who found out that her partner of 20 years had been having an affair and threatened the other woman in the street has been ordered to carry out 200 hours of community service.

Supimon Jongshansitto of Comely Bank Place in Edinburgh also confronted the other woman at a restaurant where she worked – and then poured flammable lighter fluid over the doormat of her flat.

Defence solicitor, Kim Schofield, told Sheriff Elizabeth Jarvie QC that her client had been in a relationship for 20 years and the couple had two children. Jongshansitto acted in a manner which, said Miss Schofield, was “quite out of character”.

At Edinburgh Sheriff Court yesterday, 56-year Jongshansitto was ordered to carry out 200 hours of unpaid work to be completed in one year. Jongshansitto had pled guilty previously to three charges of behaving in a threatening or abusive manner between 
February 12 and 14 this year.
