ABC Online have got an interesting story up about one Stuart Michael Fleming who’s been sentenced to two years and three months for an assault with a letterbox wielded as an axe which left his victim with brain and spinal injuries.
Sounds fair enough?
Well maybe, except the “victim” had been part of a mob of gatecrashers who’d invaded the party Stuart was at with baseball bats. Apparently Stuart lost it when he saw his brother bludgeoned down by the gatecrashers, the partygoers rallied and drove off the attackers and while chasing them away the assault took place.
The sentence will be suspended once Stuart does three months of weekend detention.
