Judge gives girl Saturdays off from curfew

A judge in England sentenced a teenage girl to stay home every night of the week but Saturday for an assault she committed at a party.

Judge William Hart told Lisa Partington, 19, she had a curfew from 9 p.m. to 7 a.m. every day for the next two months -- except Saturdays.

I give you one day off a week because it is summer and I don't think it is necessarily in your interests for you to be confined to your home every evening of the week for the next two months, the judge was quoted by the newspaper as saying.

Partington had admitted assaulting Kimberley Moxham at a party in September.
