#TheList Harry Palin, born c. 1993, of Gower Street in Telford – kicked a dog during a domestic violence incident
Harry Palin, a warehouse worker and part-time musician, started an argument with his then-partner while they were watching television on the night of February 20, 2019.
Palin apparently became angry when her dog jumped on their bed at about 9pm.
Prosecuting, Sati Ruck told the court that when he began shouting at her, Palin’s partner took the dog downstairs but he followed.
She entered the lounge and sat against the door to stop him entering, but he eventually pushed the door open, knocking her aside. Palin then took a set of door keys back upstairs so she couldn’t leave, and also took her mobile phone.When she went to retrieve them he kicked out at her, Miss Ruck said.
In the course of the assault Palin also pushed her into a wall, causing her nose to bleed, and kicked her dog.
The victim was eventually able to escape into the back garden, call her sister and call the police.
Palin told police that he couldn’t recall the assault and blamed anger issues and a ‘red mist’.
Palin was convicted of assault causing actual bodily harm.
24-month community order including 29 better relationships sessions, 20 rehabilitation requirement days, and 180 hours of unpaid work.
