A woman who assaulted another woman, who was a former colleague, in Coles supermarket was convicted when she appeared in Orange Local Court but had her conviction overturned on appeal.
Cheyenne Robson, 32, of Lords Place, pleaded guilty to assault.
Solicitor Michael Evans said there were preceding events, and Robson had also lost her job over the offence.
According to the police, the victim and a witness were shopping in the supermarket about 6.30pm on October 14.
Robson was shopping at the same time and pushed the victim in the back, causing her to stumble forwards.
The victim then went to Orange Police Station to report the assault and on November 14, 2018, Robson also went to the police station.
"I approached her and there was an altercation and I will admit to shoving her," Robson was quoted by police as saying.
Magistrate David Day convicted Robson and gave her a 12-month conditional release order.
- Robson appealed the severity of the sentence in Orange District Court in August 2019. Acting Judge Geoffrey Graham upheld the appeal and found Robson guilty of the assault without proceeding to conviction.
