BY SAMSON MBII,17TH JAN 2018-Liverpool defender Jon Flanagan was on Wednesday sentenced to 40 hours of unpaid work and 12-month community order for assaulting his girlfriend.
The England international was sentenced on Wednesday, following the late-December guilty plea of assaulting his girlfriend. He received a 12-month community order with 15 rehabilitation activity days. Additionally, Flanagan must serve 40 hours of community service and pay a bafflingly small £170 in total fees.
The 25 year old, who earns £35,000 a week, was also ordered to pay £85 court costs and £85 victim surcharge by Judge Wendy Lloyd.
Flanagan pleaded guilty at Liverpool Magistrates’ Court earlier this month to common assault by beating of Rachael Wall.
The court heard that he kicked his partner in an attack in Duke Street in Liverpool city centre at around 3.20am on Friday December 22.
