Daniel Kershaw, of Rutherford Square, Red House, is beginning 30 weeks in prison after admitting committing all three assaults in Houghton on April 26.

Kershaw, 30, pleaded guilty to attacking the woman at an earlier South Tyneside Magistrates’ Court hearing while denying the police officer charges.

But he has now admitted assaulting the officers, one male and one female, and received 15 weeks’ imprisonment for each of the two counts.

Daniel Kershaw is beginning 30 weeks in jail after attacking a woman and two police officers.

A 16-week jail term for attacking the woman will run concurrently as part of the 30-week overall sentence.

Kershaw must also pay £100 compensation to each of his victims, to be paid at a rate of £10 per fortnight from the start of March next year, and is also subject to a 12-month restraining order which prevents him from contacting the non-police victim and from entering a named Houghton street.
