Well, as long as he has no previous convictions, and maintains how frightened he was, and how the situation got out of control, he should be ok.
At least, by the standards of this case:
A 16-year-old boy has been given a community order for violent disorder following an attack which left a student fighting for his life.Note, this little thug was the aggressor…
On June 25, 2007, 20-year-old Faheem Javaid was stabbed, punched, kicked and hit with a brick and a motorcycle helmet near the McDonalds restaurant in Well Hall Road, Eltham.Aww, bless. Didn’t fancy the odds then, his mob of thugs against a single unarmed man?
Mr Javaid was attacked after his younger brother was robbed by a group of youths on a bus, the Old Bailey heard on July 24.
Charges of attempted murder and robbery against the 16-year-old, who cannot be named for legal reasons, were dropped after he pleaded guilty to violent disorder on June 22.
He had said he was “frightened” during the attack and the situation had got “totally out of control” .
Perhaps he’ll grow up to be another Glen Francis…
Judge David Paget gave the 16-year-old, who had no previous convictions, a 12-month community punishment and rehabilitation order.That’ll teach him…
Still, sauce for the goose, eh? Can Mr Philpott expect any less?
