Man attacked partner's son
A COURT has put off the sentence of a man who repeatedly punched his partner's son after drinking heavily.
Trevor Tordoff, aged 30, could recall nothing about the attack, Plymouth magistrates heard.
Tordoff, of Dorchester Avenue, Whitleigh, had earlier admitted assaulting 18-year-old Ashley Harbourne by beating on October 6.
Magistrates had initially put off sentence for a probation report.

Now a new bench has deferred sentence until April 11.
Todorff will be expected not to commit any more offences, work to tackle his drinking with the Ocean Quay project and save £60 towards possible compensation.
Eoin McCarthy, for the Crown Prosecution Service, said the defendant had punched the teenager three or four times to the head.
Graham Kinchin, for Tordorff, said: "He had issues with drink but those issues are being tackled. He has not touched a drop since October 6."
