A Dublin woman who ripped her boyfriend's scrotum, leaving him with an extruded left testicle, has been spared jail.

There was a gasp in the public gallery on Monday as the prosecution read out the injuries sustained by Eamon Desmond at the hands of Lisa Moran, 42, of Devaney Gardens, Dublin, in the assault, The Irish Independent reports.

Moran had burst into Desmond's home after taking umbrage at rumours he had made disparaging remarks about her daughter.

After some preliminaries, during which Desmond admitted Moran to the house, she launched an attack on him that included scratching, kicking and slapping.

When Desmond restrained Moran she appeared to calm down, the court was told. But when he released the by-then "frothing at the mouth" Moran, she resumed her assault.

While Desmond was calling the police, he felt "a sharp pain in his scrotum area", a police officer told the court.

When police arrived they found him with injuries including a lacerated scrotum which left his left testicle extruding, apparently caused by his belt buckle.

Four years on after the attack in 2007, Desmond had made a good recovery but still bore a small scar, the court was told this week, and simply wanted to put the issue behind him.

Judge Nolan accepted the scrotum injury was not intentional, but said Moran was guilty of reckless assault. He sentenced her to 18 months suspended.

Moran is the second woman to have escaped a jail term for scrotal-related violence in the last week. Last Friday a Gateshead woman with given a suspended sentence and 150 hours community service for an assault which left her boyfriend with a ripped and bloodied sac. ®
