Company director fined after night-out assault

First published in News

A COMPANY director has been fined for an assault during a night out in Blandford. Bradley Craig Windeatt, 40, appeared at Dorchester Crown Court to be sentenced for an offence of assault occasioning actual bodily harm. Prosecutor Heather Shimmen told the court that on the night of December 21 last year the defendant pushed his victim to the floor in the street. She said the man suffered a laceration to the bridge of his nose, which could leave a lasting scar, and damage to his teeth that required more than £5,000-worth of dental work. Robert Grey, mitigating, said his client – a director of civil engineering firm Building Repairs and Drainage Limited – was full of remorse. He added that Windeatt, of Melway Gardens, Child Okeford, was willing to pay compensation to his victim. Judge Roger Jarvis fined the defendant £500 and ordered he pay compensation of £5,500. He said: “This is a very expensive night out for you.”

Company director seems to be being used to elevate Bradley to some position of grandeur, to make the conviction more shocking. The reality is that almost anyone can become a company director in about 10 minutes and £50. Seems to me that he is a groundsman who appreciates the limited liability and tax benefits afforded by a limited company.
