A man from Bury St Edmunds, who admitted assaulting his partner, has been warned he may be jailed.

James Spendley, 27, appeared at Ipswich Crown Court yesterday where he pleaded guilty to assault causing actual bodily harm to Victoria Easlea on July 2.

Spendley, of Eastern Way, Bury, also admitted putting her in fear of violence by harassment between May and September last year, kicking her, punching her and squeezing her throat at an address in Woolpit.

Adjourning sentencing until next month, Judge David Goodin told Spendley all options remained open, including immediate custody.
