A woman who assaulted her mother causing one eye to swell shut after they were drinking together on Christmas Day last year has appealed her jail sentence.
The daughter, who was 27 years old at the time of the offence is not named to protect the identity of the victim.
The daughter had a broken arm when the fight took place and her plaster cast caused the injuries.
She was originally given a two-year jail sentence with 12-month non-parole period when she was sentenced in Orange Local Court, and she had been in custody since September 25.
However, she appealed the severity of the sentence in Orange District Court on Tuesday.
Judge Stephen Norrish although the woman did not have a clean criminal record it was not extensive.
"They were drinking and arguing and the mother grabbed [the daughter's] hair and she hit her with the cast," Judge Norrish said.
"It's not a one-way street.
"This is not a matter that at this stage calls for a term of full-time imprisonment."
Judge Norrish revoked the jail term given in the local court and taking into account the two years she'd already spent in jail he gave her an 18-month intensive correction order and she must comply with requirements for rehabilitation and treatment and complete 50 hours of community service.
The order will be a community-based custodial sentence and if breached the daughter could finish the term in jail.
