A woman has been given a suspended sentence after she molested another female who was trying to comfort her.
Codie Richardson had been drinking vodka and Red Bull at the woman’s home in Dewsbury after they had been to a funeral.
Richardson became upset and punched herself in the face. The complainant sat with her on the sofa trying to calm her down.
Richardson kissed the woman who initially responded in a friendly fashion but then turned away but the defendant later said she wanted to have sex with her.
Her victim was left shocked and upset.
The 22-year-old admitted to sexual assault and an assault causing actual bodily harm.
Richardson was sentenced to 18 months in prison, suspended for two years with 100 hours unpaid work, 30 rehabilitation activity days and ordered to register as a sex offender for 10 years.
