I've now found that Caro was sentenced to three days imprisonment (and thus released immediately) and was ordered to pay £100 costs. And also that the flogging took place specifically at a "track" near the lime works at Westwell.
Coates was latterly described as a "banking student". Quite soon afterwards another Kenneth Coates was put on probation at Newcastle assizes for beating up his prospective father in law who suffered a fractured skull. By the time of the verdict he had already married Lavinia. The presiding judge expressed the view that the defendant had opted for a rather drastic way of ingrating himself with his in laws.
