PENZANCE man Shane Jenkin, 31, of South Place Folly, appeared before Bodmin magistrates in custody on Christmas Eve charged with breaching his bail conditions by failing to observe a curfew.

Jenkin is on bail to Truro Crown Court in connection with an alleged domestic assault causing actual bodily harm said to have been committed on April 23.

He admitted that he had gone out into Penzance late on the night of December 23 in breach of the 8pm to 7am electronically monitored tag.

He was released on bail on the same conditions before – not to contact the alleged victim, not to go to Hayle, to live and sleep at South Place Folly and to observe the curfew.

No date was given for a Crown Court hearing in the case.

    I think that Shane Jenkin is a nasty cowardly piece of work who has shown remorse for his callousness. I am disgusted how somebody like this has not only subjected Tina Nash to beatings but thinks it's acceptable to gouge somebody's eyes out and then blame the victim for his actions. He is nothing but Scum, and he has been in trouble with the Police before breaking the Law frequently. Shane Jenkin does not deserve any respect. He has only been sent to a Psychiatric Ward for 5 years. The punishment in this case has been lenient. Tina Nash has to suffer this pain of not being able to see anybody or anything ever again in her life because of one abusive and aggressive individual. It really is unfair it has come to this. Shane Jenkin kept Tina Nash locked up 12 hours after the eye-gouging attack without phoning the Ambulance for medical help. He is a thug who probably wanted to kill his girlfriend, he punched her many times before, and tried to strangle her. It is lucky Tina Nash didn't die that night but it's really unlucky she got blinded by this moron. I hope Tina all the best in the future and that it will make her stronger. I was shocked after reading about this and it was upsetting seeing the images. x
