Plymouth man fractured victim's eye socket
A MAN is to be sentenced after he admitted fracturing someone's eye socket.
Jedd Owens, aged 20, pleaded guilty to assaulting the man causing grievous bodily harm without intent.
But his barrister told Plymouth Crown Court that victim Kieren Friel's injuries may merit a lesser charge.
Owens, of Wolseley Road, admitted attacking the man on May 1.

Nick Lewin, for the defendant, said: "This type of fracture to the orbit of the skull may have been one of those injuries which required no treatment at all. If that is the case, maybe it does not qualify as a grievous bodily harm."
He said that further medical reports were expected and that Owens was expected to start work as a door-to-door salesman.
Judge Paul Darlow adjourned the hearing until October 4, releasing Owens on conditional bail. He will be sentenced alongside Daniel Coles, 18, who has already pleaded guilty to robbing another man in the same incident. Coles, staying at a hostel in Surrey, robbed Andrew Draper of a cigarette.
