A WOMAN has been jailed for kicking and biting police officers as well as her mother, a court heard.

Lisa Wilson, of Anson Street, has been convicted of assaulting two police officers, namely PC Bredova and Sgt Hill on June 1 and June 2 respectively as well as her own mother Lorraine Cleasby in Barrow.

This comes a few months after identical assaults on two police officers in September of last year.

South Cumbria Magistrates' Court heard that the 39-year-old admitted to biting her mother’s ear, left upper arm, and then hit her in the face.

In addition to this, she kicked one police officer in the stomach before biting them on the arm and then bit another officer on the knee, the court was told.

The bench found no other option than to commit her to prison for 44 weeks because of the seriousness of the offending, 'shocking behaviour', as well as the sustained attacks on all victims including police officers acting in the exercise of their duty and her own mother.

The bench also found aggravating factors in that the offences occurred when she was subject to licence for identical offences as well as the defendant's record of previous offending.

The identical offence in question occurred back in September 2020 when Wilson was said not to have cooperated with police following an incident on Longmynd Avenue and bit PC Howard on her right hand during the struggle.

The defendant was arrested for assault and taken to Barrow's police station, where she kicked out and tried to bit officers.

She kicked another officer, PC Bell, several times in the chest, magistrates were told.

PC Howard had to attend hospital for tests and treatment on her hand after the attack broke skin and caused bruising.

South Cumbria Magistrates’ Court convicted her for those offences back in January.

These offences have been condemned by Cumbria Police who have expressed on multiple occasions that assaults on officers will not be tolerated and highlighted this as an example to deter others from doing the same.

Superintendent Matt Pearman of Cumbria Constabulary said: “In this case two officers were bitten and assaulted whilst performing their duty to serve the public.

"This does not just have an immediate physical impact but can also cause longer term distress.

“This sentence shows assaults against officers and other emergency workers will not be tolerated, they work incredibly hard to keep people in Cumbria safe and there is absolutely no excuse for any of them to be assaulted just for going to work."

The defendant was given a 24-week sentence for the assault on PC Bredova and 20 weeks for the assault on Sgt Hill, totalling 44 weeks.

The assault on her mother on June 1 led to a prison sentence of 12 weeks to be served concurrently with the other sentences already imposed. She was also told to pay a total of £450 in compensation to the victims.
