It is not the first time Farndon, who is serving time after he was found guilty of grievous bodily harm following a brutal hammer attack that left his victim with a fractured skull, has escaped custody.But, despite that...
He leapt from the dock at Coventry Crown Court during a court appearance in connection with the GBH charge and was on the run for a time.
Farndon was handed an indeterminate sentence for public protection in his absence and told he must serve at least two years before being eligible for parole./facepalm
He was also sentenced to 18 months for dangerous driving, 18 months for aggravated vehicle-taking, and banned from driving for two-and-a-half years.
Despite the serious offence, officials only classed him as a category C prisoner - meaning he was deemed unlikely to make a determined escape attempt.
