Jacek Nawara's victim told Swords District Court that she still suffers from dizziness and requires regular medical attention from her GP. She also said she is due to have an MRI scan on her brain next month.

Nawara (36) of Waterrill, Waterside in Malahide, Co Dublin pleaded guilty before Swords District Court to assault causing harm to the woman on December 25th, 2012 at Castlefarm in Swords.

Garda Karen Duffy said the housemates were celebrating Christmas when the assault occurred.

The court heard that so far the victim has medical bills amounting to €450 and lost earnings of €2,800 after she could not work for the two months following the assault due to the nature of her injuries.

Judge Dermot Dempsey adjourned the case until October 20 for facts to be heard and for the defendant to come up with compensation. He also ordered an up-to-date medical report on the victim.
