PROZAC KNIFE- ATTACK MUM SET TO CHEAT JAIL
A mum who stabbed a man during a drunken argument is set to cheat jail after a judge heard she was taking Prozac. Louise Wheldon, 34, had been on the anti-depressant for four years before she carried out the knife attack. But the High Court in Edinburgh heard that the stabbing was "out of character" and Lady Paton said she would consider giving Wheldon community service instead of jail. A psychiatrist claimed Wheldon was not mentally ill but that one of the side effects of Prozac was violent behaviour.
