A solicitor for a Ballymoney woman accused of assaulting a female occasioning her actual bodily harm has written to prosecutors to see if there could be an “alternative disposal” in the case.
Lawyer Denise Gillan said the defendant – Helen Dunlop (41), of Margaret Square in Ballymoney – had a clear record.
The alleged offence before the court relates to July 2 this year.
At Coleraine Magistrates Court on August 12 the defendant was given £500 bail and is to have no contact with the alleged injured party and two others, including on social media.
She is not to drink alcohol and is not to enter Trinity Drive in Ballymoney.
The case was adjourned to September.
