No jail term in fractured jaw assault case
A CHELTENHAM man has escaped an immediate prison sentence after fracturing his lodger's jaw in two places and his eye socket.
Matthew Peelo was found guilty of grievous bodily harm following a trial at Gloucester Crown Court, where he had pleaded self defence.
The court heard the 33-year-old attacked his lodger Ashley Bennett after he had become locked out of his home in May last year.
Peelo, of Thames Road in Cheltenham, had no previous convictions for violence.

Recorder Michael de Navarro QC spared Peelo an immediate prison sentence.
He gave him a nine months jail term suspended for two years and ordered he carry out 150 hours of unpaid work.
He said he would not give him a curfew as it was not an offence committed at night in drink.
He said: "This was a one off after he had been locked out. It was completely out of order."
