One woman claimed she wasn’t a “monster” despite throwing glasses at an innocent pub rider – leaving him scarred for life.
Jessica McMillan, 23, was caught in front of camera while losing her temper with Ryan Davies, 27, before throwing a glass in his face.
Mr. Davies had 27 stitches after a horrifying attack at the Hand Post Hotel in Newport, South Wales.
The Cardiff Crown Court heard the incident that resulted in Mr. Davies losing his job, bearing the scar all his life and breaking up with his son’s mother.
After stepping out of the courthouse, McMillan said: “I am not a monster.
“Honestly I hate talking about it. The main thing is now I have a criminal record.
“I will never be what I want in life now. I also plan to go to school to try and get somewhere.
“I’m not a monster and I’ve been feeling like a monster for months. I just want to get on with my life.”
In a statement about the victim’s impact, Mr. Davies said: “I lost confidence and covered my scar with facial hair.
“I believe this has resulted in me being unable to find full-time work.”
McMillan has denied intentional illegal and malicious intentional injury and was found guilty after a trial in February.
She had previously admitted to a lesser crime than illegally beating the wound.

Judge Jeremy Jenkins said: “You lashed out at Mr. Davies. On your hand was a glass smashing his face.”
McMillan was sentenced to 15 months, 18 months suspended.
She is also subject to a community order for 18 months and will have to pay a victim fee.
