Danny Lee cut Yasiira Senyonjo in the neck, causing blood to gush over his clothes in East Street, Brighton. Lee was on the run after failing to comply with the terms of his release from prison. He was previously convicted of knifing a man on the bus and threatening his own mother with a blade. The 31-year-old had been deemed safe to return into the public, so long as he took his medication.
At Brighton Crown Court, Lee was sent back to prison for four more years.Or half that, if he can persuade another bored State employee that he's all better now.
Lee was wanted on recall to prison at the time of the attack, having previously been sentenced to six years for inflicting grievous bodily harm in 2013.
He was put under stricter controls because of his “dangerousness” to the public.Those 'stricter controls' did a bang up job, didn't they?
Jeffrey Lamb, defending, said Lee is described as a pleasant man, as long as he is taking his medication. He wants to move to Dublin in Ireland to resume a relationship, so Mr Lamb asked the judge not to make the sentence too long.Because Border Control will make sure he doesn't come back, right?
Well said. It's a joke.
