A KELTY woman has been admonished for assaulting a nine-year-old girl after an argument about music in a back garden.

Claire Munro, 36, of Muirton Terrace, appeared for sentencing at Dunfermline Sheriff Court.

She admitted previously that on March 5, at her home address, she assaulted a nine-year-old child by slapping her on the body.

Depute fiscal Zahra Bhatti told the court previously that Munro and the girl had been in the back garden when the incident occurred.

“The girl was asked to turn down the music but by mistake turned it up. The accused was angry about this and slapped her on the thigh,” she added.

Defence solicitor Peter Robertson said his client had suffered a stroke before the incident and was going through the after-effects at that time.

Sheriff Alison Michie admonished Munro.
