A woman claimed ‘I am not a monster’ despite leaving an innocent pub-goer scarred for life and in need of 27 stitches after she glassed him in a bar. 

Jessica McMillan, 23, lost her temper and thrust a glass into the face of Ryan Davies, 27, at a pub in Newport, south Wales.  

Mr Davies was left in need of 27 stitches following the attack, which the father-of-one claims led to him losing his job and severing the relationship with the mother of his son.    

McMillan was jailed for 15 months, suspended for 18 months.

She declared ‘I am not a monster’ as she walked free from Cardiff Crown Court.

In a victim impact statement, Mr Davies said: ‘I have lost my self confidence and hide my scar with facial hair.

‘I believe this has resulted in me being unable to find full time employment.’ 

McMillan, from Newport, denied unlawfully and maliciously wound with intent and was found not guilty following a trial in February.

She had previously admitted the lesser offence of unlawful wounding.

Sentencing, Judge Jeremy Jenkins said: ‘You lashed out at Mr Davies. In your hand at the time was a glass which struck his face with some force.’

McMillan was made subject of an 18 month community order and will have to pay a victim surcharge.

Leaving court, she said: ‘I honestly hate talking about it. The main thing is I now have a criminal record.

‘I will never be what I want to be in life now. I’m planning to go to uni soon as well to try and get somewhere.

‘I’m not a monster and I been feeling like one for months. I just wanna move on with my life.’
