Jade Goody's Husband Found Guilty Of Assault

by | 03 March 2009

Jack Tweed, the husband of reality television star Jade Goody, has been found guilty of assaulting a taxi driver.

Tweed, 21, who married terminally ill Goody last month, was convicted at Epping magistrates' court of attacking Stephen Wilkins in Essex last May.

Tweed is currently wearing an electronic tag having been released on licence for a separate attack on a 16-year-old boy with a golf club, for which he was sentenced to 18 months in prison.

Tweed will be sentenced later over the attack on Mr Wilkins which occurred after the cab driver had picked up Tweed, Michael Haskell and two unidentified females outside the Club 195 nightclub in Epping.

Prior to the verdict, Tweed's barrister Tania Panagiotapoulou said: "The court has heard evidence that does not paint a flattering picture as far as Jack Tweed is concerned.

"His behaviour was doubtless reprehensible. He was rowdy, aggressive, he was drunk and he was argumentative. The extent of his aggression is very much of issue.

"It's absolutely denied by the defence there was any assault at all on that night."

Ms Panagiotapoulou claimed Mr Wilkins had "flowered" his evidence in claiming that Tweed had grabbed his throat and threatened to stab him in an argument over the cab fare.

Tweed's wife Goody, who has weeks to live after cervical cancer spread through her body, is today recovering from emergency surgery on her bowel.
