Man accused of assault has case adjourned for interpreter to be present
A man accused of an offence of assault in Yeovil has had the case against him adjourned for an interpreter to be present.
Adrian Piotr Lachowicz, 31, of Beer Street, Yeovil, appeared before Somerset Magistrates charged with an offence of assaulting Franciszek Stiek causing her actual bodily harm. He did not enter a plea.
Defending solicitor John Killah told the court that although his Polish client spoke good English he was concerned that he did not fully understand the implications of the court proceedings and asked for an interpreter to be present to assist him.
The magistrates agreed to adjourn the case until March 15 for this to be arranged and in the meantime released the defendant on bail with conditions not to contact the complainant directly or indirectly and not to go to a specified address in Woodland Terrace, Yeovil.
