A Bideford man has been warned he faces jail after admitting breaking a woman’s eye socket.
Jamie Thorne, of Clifton Street in Bideford, pleaded guilty to causing grievous bodily harm when he appeared at Exeter Crown Court.
The court was told Thorne has a number of previous convictions for violence against women.
“He has a record for violence against women which is highly unattractive to put it mildly,” he added.
Thorne was remanded in custody for a pre-sentence report to be written by January 17.
