A Glossop man who assaulted his partner in a row over sex has been given a community order.
Paul Rowley and fiancee Kelly Cornell were at their Dinting Vale home on March 14 with their three children, High Peak Magistrates’ Court heard.
The couple consumed two bottles of wine before going to bed, when Rowley lay on top of Ms Cornell and began making sexual advances towards her. She told him to get off, before slapping him to the side of the head, prosecutor Jennifer Fitzgerald said. He then punched her three times to the lower back and buttock area before lifting her by the hair and throwing her on the ground.
