A man who stabbed his former partner has narrowly avoided a prison term, instead receiving a pre-sentence order and being forced to attend domestic violence counselling.
The court heard Dixon Foley, 22, used a small kitchen knife to stab the victim once in each thigh in September.
Foley then left the scene and was arrested by police a short time later.If he breaches the pre-sentence order or fails to attend the counselling, he will be imprisoned for 14 months.
