Joseph Kotrie-Monson, defending, said his client was a suicide risk.
Judge Trevor-Jones told him: “You are described as having very high anger and aggressive characteristics.”Hmmm. Any evidence of that?
Jack Brierley attempted to escape the dock and knocked a female security guard to the floor as chaos broke out inside Liverpool Crown Court.
The 21-year-old, who has a history of trying to set himself on fire, grabbed his tie with two hands, tightening it, and shouted how he wanted to die.Ah. Ok.
What was he there for?
Brierley had just been handed five years and seven months in prison for a brutal attack on a pedestrian who’d made a jokey remark about his noisy exhaust.
After getting out his car and punching Anthony Jordan in the street, last November, Brierley circled the streets in Ashton-in-Makerfield, looking for more retribution.
Armed with a heavy exhaust pipe from his boot, the ADHD-sufferer clubbed the victim while screaming his intention to kill him, prosecutors said.Open and shut!
After order was restored, he was heard sobbing and repeatedly apologising.Yeeeeeah, it’s a bit late for that, methinks.
