A PREGNANT mum who was kicked in the head by her drunken partner at a Sheffield wedding told a court she is standing by her man.

The attack took place after Jonathan Levin and Amy Jackson had been guests at a wedding party at Sheffield’s Hilton Hotel.

John Cooper, prosecuting at Chesterfield Magistrates’ Court, said there was a free bar at the party and 22-year-old Levin got ‘extremely drunk’.

He wanted to go out following the function and flew into a rage when the couple returned home - smashing a TV and mirror.

The court heard he then called police, claiming he had kicked his 21-year-old partner in the head.

When officers arrived, he said: “I need an anger management course or something.

“It’s just got out of hand tonight and I need help. I need punishing - take me with you.”

Ms Jackson, who was three months pregnant, was crying and shaking when officers arrived and taken to hospital for a check-up.

Levin told police he had kicked his partner once before throwing a bowl at her, which struck her arm.

Mr Cooper said she went on to make a retraction statement.

He said: “She said it was a one-off and she still loved him and she wanted them to get back together in the future.

“She said she would like him to get some anger management.”

Levin, who has previous convictions for assault, damage, threatening behaviour and being drunk and disorderly, admitted assault and also damaging property.

He is to be sentenced at Derby Crown Court on October 5 after probation service reports are carried out.
