Lack of interpreter delays domestic violence case at Exeter Crown Court
The case of a Polish man who attacked his wife has been adjourned because there was no interpreter at court to translate for him.
Janusz Jozefczyk, aged 51, of Mallow Court, Willand, has admitted assaulting his wife Ewa during a domestic incident at their home.
He was due to be sentenced at Exeter Crown Court but the case was adjourned by Recorder Mr Llewellyn Sellick because no interpreter had been booked.
Mr Richard Parkhouse, defending, said he was unable to take instructions or discuss the contents of a probation pre sentence report without an interpreter.
Jozefczyk was remanded in custody until a new hearing next week.
