A WOMAN was last night (September 3) starting a seven year jail sentence after stamping on her best friend's face with her silver stiletto shoe - blinding her in one eye.

Care assistant Melissa Causer, 21, was involved in what a judge described as a “drunken catfight” which escalated following a row over hairspray and a taxi fare.

Her 20-year-old victim - university student Sophie Robinson - suffered irreparable damage after the last of the blows from the thin high heel split open her right eyeball.

Causer, of Middleton St George, near Darlington, was sentenced yesterday (September 3) having earlier been convicted by a jury at Teesside Crown Court of causing grievous bodily harm with intent. She had denied the charge.

In a statement Miss Robinson, of Northallerton, North Yorkshire, said the injury had changed her life forever.

“These things still affect me daily," she added. "I still find it hard when people stare at me and I am so self conscious.

“This whole incident has changed mine and my family’s life forever. I will be reminded everyday of my life about what happened to me.

“I also struggle with trust issues. I become really wary when I am around people who drink alcohol. It makes me feel anxious and nervous as I don’t fully trust anyone.”

Miss Robinson, who is due to have a false eye fitted, added: “I can’t understand why she (Causer) pleaded not guilty and made me go through this whole experience."

The two women had been on a night out in Middlesbrough on January 10 and brawled on their return to Causer’s home - having initially argued over hairspray and a taxi fare.

Causer, of Brown Buildings, Middleton St George, pinned Miss Robinson down and was being pulled off her by her own father when she struck out with her stiletto shoes in what police branded a “moment of madness fuelled by drink”.

Annalise Haugstad, mitigating, told Teesside Crown Court: “She expresses genuine remorse and regret for the injury caused to her friend. There is no suggestion that the footwear was worn deliberately to cause this injury.”

She added that it was out of character and involved a momentary loss of control.

Prosecutor Richard Bennett said: "There can be no suggestion of excessive self-defence. This was an attack.”

Sentencing Causer to seven years jail, Judge Peter Bowers revealed he had considered placing the offence into a more serious category which could have resulted in a 16 year jail sentence

“While you deliberately kicked out into her face I am satisfied that your intention to cause serious harm to your friend was only momentary," he added.

“In every sense of the word this is a case which is truly tragic. It was a drunken catfight that arose out of nothing and as a result two lives have been changed forever.”

Yes alcohol abuse is a massive problem and drugs is even greater, it would be nice to have an easy answer to it all, but i fear with the state of the Police the Courts and the **** Human Rights act there is very little we can do about it, much is the pity for us members of the public and our society as a whole.

A sad tale - and rather pathetic. The judge said he considered putting the crime into a more serious bracket. I think she was "lucky" to only get 7 years (of which she'll probably do half). Hope she manages to become a better person.

Aren't you the little key board warrior Studio, trolling a young woman who clearly has suffered a lot through this ordeal.

Seven years is about right i'd say, maybe she'll think twice upon her return to society, though if it were my daughter who had been the victim, i'd probably feel it could be never long enough.

Ignore the little children Sophie, i hope you can move on with your life with your held high.

I wouldn't normally bother commenting or listening to narrow minded people but I feel strong enough to register on here to give my personal opinion on my daughters loss ! She underwent 5 hours of surgery knowing she was going to loose her sight ! She then went on to stay in hospital for two weeks having three different types of eye drops every 1/2 an hour throughout the 24hours for over a week ! Not able to even rest ! Anyone who wants to critique maybe should try and swap places with my daughter and live her life for even one day - your visual perception is distorted , headaches , spills drinks when pouring them , couldn't stand very bright lights or really dark , found it difficult to read and watch tv for long periods , bumps into people , and the list goes on and on ! So please be kind ! She did nothing at all to deserve this and she really is the most sweet girl ❤️

Unfortunately cowardly and spiteful comments that Studio made on here are all too common on these sites. They are intended to hurt and do so as I've found to my own cost in the last year.
All I'd say it was an appalling assault intending to do serious physical harm aggravated by the assailant's refusal to admit her guilt. Personally I think she should have got longer than 7 years and for his horrific comments Studio should have served 12 months with her.

I like your comment, however alcohol (drug) causes more misery than any other drug, not the other way round. The really sad thing is we glorify drunken antics and consider being drunk as the norm for a night out.
Briton is the only country in Europe where people go out to get deliberately smashed , whereas other countries consume alcohol only as part of a social gathering.

No nastiness meant in me writing this you just sound a little too cocky to be honest
So I was looking at that article again and the pictures and I thought to myself how come on one picture Sophie has her left eye shut and on another the right eye shut? U know Sophie you laugh like it's a joke and your self conscious but another girl has lost part of her life too you say your self conscious and all that if that was true you wouldn't be on here like u have gained something did u do it for what u have lost or for attention? No nastiness meant in me writing this you just sound a little too cocky to be honest Bondage

Have you ever took a photo facing the camera and took another when you turn the camera around? Your face flips around. .try it & I'm on here because my life has been life longed destroyed not just few years destroyed all because someone can't handle her drink and being jealous. I'd swap lives with her any day to have my eye sight back. Unless your in my shoes then you'll never understand. Why should I feel remorse for her when she's ruined me. Every part of me. & soon she will be free whereas I won't. . Always will be deformed. Uncompleted. Always at appointments. Always having sight problems.. The eye she blinded was my good eye out the two. I may come across as cocky about things when people comment things against me when I see one victim and the fucka is Me!

Err I didn't turn and physically hurt anybody he attacked me... that's like saying a child gets raped because they asked for it? & 7 years. . She's doing half that and I've already heard she's allowed out on weekends after few weeks and if she gets a job outside jail she only has to sleep in jail.. how Is that punishment

And if it's not obvious I didn't want people to think this has bothered me but it has but I wanted to make it look like I wasn't but I didn't know that saying one little thing in court about feeling ugly would go in the paper
