Newark man, 30, handed 20 month suspended sentence after punching man who needed reconstructive surgery to his face
A man needed reconstructive surgery after he was punched in the face, a court heard.
Jordan Marshall, of Lincoln Road, Newark, was handed a 20 month suspended sentence at Nottingham Crown Court on Friday.
The 30-year-old pleaded guilty to the offence that happened in a pub on Castlegate, Newark, in the early hours of April 7, 2018.
Marshall left his 42-year-old victim with a fractured eye socket that required surgery.
As well as the suspended sentence, he was ordered to carry out 100 hours of unpaid work, undergo a nine-month alcohol treatment programme and pay £1,500 compensation to his victim.
Detective Constable Adrian White said: "Marshall committed a violent and unnecessary attack and we're glad he's now been held to account by the courts for this crime.
"The team worked hard on this case and I'd like to thank the victim for his strength and bravery throughout."
