Billy Bellfield will spend six years in jail and four on licence after a series of violent attacks including trying to stab teenage girls on a train.
Utter scum, from an utterly scummy family...
The court heard Bellfield had suffered “significant traumas” in recent years including the murder of his brother, Luke, 18, in Old Leigh in February (Ed: yes, this one).
In addition, Bellfield’s mum is battling breast cancer and the 21-year-old was involved in a serious crash which left him with a head injury and broken leg.
Which will probably keep him out of trouble longer than our feeble justice system...
Mitigating, Cathryn Sutcliffe said: “While in custody his girlfriend who was pregnant had a child. He has never seen his child.
“At the end of February, a tragedy struck again. His younger brother Luke was murdered. He hasn’t been able to see his family and is unsure if he can go to the funeral.”
That's not mitigation, love. That's called 'consequences'.
As did the father. Whoever he turned out to be.
