A football manager with a suspended prison sentence hanging over him begged door staff not to report him to police after flooring a clubber with one punch.Well, maybe the sentence wasn’t for drunken viole…
The 23-year-old was given a suspended prison sentence in January last year after being part of a group that attacked two brothers in the city centre.Well, that’s his goose cooked, then.
Ha! Only kidding!
But despite hitting another man during a nightclub argument about a dropped mobile phone, he has again avoided prison.*sigh*
Recorder Sarah Vaughan-Jones QC decided to extend the period of the suspended prison sentence and ordered that he do unpaid work and serve a curfew.And why?
Anna Midgley, defending, said after initially pleading with door staff not to tell the police, Robson had co-operated completely with authorities.Well, maybe he’s only a drunken violent little scumbag when he’s had a drink, so…
Miss Midgley said Robson was a young man who worked full time, and who was remorseful and managed a football club in Kingswood, showing a "degree of responsibility."
Oh. Clearly not:
Robson was suspended for two matches last month for use of offensive language directed at match officials.Isn’t it about time the football authorities started to take the action that the magistrates clearly are loathe to?
Or is it ok to get drunk, beat up strangers and abuse officials so long as you aren’t racist or homophobic?
