A LOCHGELLY woman has finally been sentenced for getting into a fight with another female more than three years ago.

The altercation took place at 10am with Charlene Valente grabbing the other woman’s hair and hitting her over the head with a mobile phone.

Valente, 44, of Paul Street, appeared at Dunfermline Sheriff Court for sentencing.

She admitted previously that on September 12, 2019, at Mcgregor Avenue, Lochgelly, she acted in a disorderly manner, engaged in a fight with a woman, struggled with her, seized her by the hair, struck her on the head with an object and committed a breach of the peace.

Depute fiscal Azrah Yousaf said the woman had turned up at Valente’s home before 10am and challenges were made about fighting.

Valente then struck the woman with a “blunt object” and police were contacted.

The court was told the object involved had been the mobile phone Valente had been holding.

Defence solicitor David Bell said there was “some ill-feeling” between the women at that time and “tempers were flaring”.

Sheriff Peter Anderson told Valente that because of her previous record of offences, courts would “take a dim view of any trouble you get into”. He imposed a fine of £150.
