Jessica McMillan, 23, lost her temper and stabbed a glass in the face of Ryan Davies, 27, at a pub in Newport, South Wales.
Mr. Davies needed 27 stitches after the attack, one of which the father claims he lost his job and severed relationship with his son’s mother.
McMillan was jailed for 15 months, suspended for 18 months.
She stated ‘I am not a monster’ as she ran free from Cardiff Crown Court.

In a victim impact statement, Mr. Davies said, ‘I’ve lost my confidence and hide my scar with facial hair.
“I think this has meant that I have not been able to find a full-time job.”
McMillan, of Newport, denied being unlawfully and intentionally injured and was found not guilty after a trial in February.
She had previously admitted the lesser felony of wrongful injury.
Judge Jeremy Jenkins said, “You lashed out at Mr. Davies. At the time you had a glass in your hand that hit his face with some force. ‘
