Oxford student Lavinia Woodward ‘may avoid jail’ for knife attack

Lavinia Woodward has ambitions to enter the medical profession, a court heard

An “extraordinary” Oxford University student who stabbed her ex-boyfriend in the leg may avoid jail as it would affect her career prospects, a judge has said.

Lavinia Woodward, 24, attacked the man at Christ Church college, while she was under the influence of drink and drugs.

She admitted inflicting grievous body harm, the Oxford Mail reported.

At Oxford Crown Court, Judge Ian Pringle QC said he believed the attack was “a complete one-off”.
