'Ridiculously drunk' mom knees daughter's school principal in the groin

By Super Admin

Melbourne, Jun 25 (ANI): A woman, who was in a very inebriated state, could not recall punching, spitting and kneeing her daughter's school principal in the groin.

Karen Lee Pommer, 47, attacked Jeff Munce when she went to pick up her eight-year-old daughter from Warrigal Road State School in the Brisbane suburb of Eight Mile Plains on October 31 last year.

The Brisbane District Court was told on June 25 that Pommer entered the school grounds screaming obscenities while the students waited to be collected at the end of the day.

When Munce approached her she punched his head repeatedly, then kneed him in the groin and spat in his face.

She also slapped and spat at another mother who tried to intervene.

The court was told Pommer - who was infected with hepatitis C - then spat at and bit three police officers who arrived to arrest her.

None of her victims contracted the highly infectious disease.

When she was hauled into the police vehicle, she then wriggled free from her handcuffs and smashed one of the windows.

Defence barrister Jann Taylor said Pommer, a chronic alcoholic, had been suffering an "alcohol-induced blackout"' when she went to the school.

"She was ridiculously drunk to the point of no recollection," News.com.au quoted Taylor as saying.

Pommer pleaded guilty to 10 offences including three counts of serious assault and two of common assault.

Judge Leanne Clare sentenced her to two years' jail but released her on parole immediately. (ANI)
