The comments made at the bottom of the article are worthy of note. The fact is the fcukng scrote will be out in about 4 years. He broke in in possession of a knife FFS. Ergo his intention must have been to use it so a minium of 15 years (all of it!) should have been handed down.
Check out these Jocks - and not a do-gooder in sight
Attacks a woman with a knife, then stabs a KID in the FACE and gets off with 8 years for attempted murder?
Is it any wonder this country is a bag of bollocks, if you can do that and only get 8 years for it?
shouldnt the accused get more due to it being 2x attempted murders?? one for trying to kill the mum and THEN stabbing the kid in the face?? what a joke, this country is falling apart due to those farts with cloaks sat behind a desk.
if someone was to do this and i was a judge, id see fit to it that he got at least 40-50 years, with a min of 30 before a probation hearing.
anyway, no doubt the police will give him the chance to change his name due to people wanting to 'hurt him' after he gets out...
