Gilmore attacker pleads guilty

STEPHANIE Gilmore's attacker pleaded guilty to some offences but will contest others.

Julius Fox pleaded guilty to the assault and reckless wounding of Miss Gilmore in December 2010 outside her Tweed Heads unit.

Miss Gilmore sustained a head wound and a fractured wrist in the attack.
