"Safe Jersey - 'The Big Society' - In Action"

Kickboxer (17) who nearly killed a man is spared jail

Kickboxed (17) who nearly killed a man is spared jail

A TEENAGE kick boxer who nearly killed a man after a drunken street attack was spared jail by the Royal Court yesterday because he was only 17 years old. 

The 23-year-old victim suffered a blood clot near his brain from the punches and elbow blow he received and spent five days in an induced coma. He is now making a strong recovery.

The court sentenced the 17-year-old defendant to 300 hours of community service for the largely unprovoked assault, which took place in St Clement on 11 September.

The Deputy Bailiff, William Bailhache, said that the only reason he was not being put behind bars was because of his youth.


  1. Unbelievable, WTF is going on? Strimming Cotils or picking up rubbish is hardly going to teach this dangerous little fucker anything. He was a big enough man to pick the fight he should be big enough to take the jail time! We seriously need to look at the sentencing being being handed out these days. No doubt this lad had a clever lawyer and the old sob stories would be brought out, mummy doesn't love him, deprived childhood, he only has a Playstation 2 and last seasons Nike trainers etc, etc! Let's see how quickly you would get jailed here if you refuse to pay your taxes!!
