Drink-drive vigilantes jailed

ABERDEEN, Scotland - Two men were jailed for a total of five years just before Christmas for a vigilante-style knife attack on a drink-driver in whose car a young boy was killed.

The victim, aged 30, had just been freed after serving eight years in jail for the crime, the London Daily Mail reported.

Corby Clark, 24, and Andrew Henderson, 44, attacked David Jones in Castlegate, Aberdeen, just days after he was released from jail. He admitted, back in 2004, causing the death of eight-year-old Andrew Henderson - the son of a friend.

LEFT DYING

Jones, the court heard, crashed into a wall on a country road after drinking fortified wine. He pulled Stephan Henderson from the wreckage but then fled, leaving him dying on the ground.

Two other boys, aged 11 and 12, were injured in the crash.

Clark and Henderson admitted in Aberdeen Sheriff's Court attacking Jones two weeks after he was released from jail. They attacked the now 30-year-old man with a Stanley knife, slashing his face and ears.

Clark admitted kicking Jones repeatedly on the body in April 2012, Henderson to striking him on the head with the knife - which had been brought to the scene by Jones, and was jailed for 27 months.

Henderson got 36 months.

    Don't you proof read anymore? Who is Stephan in this story? Jones, the court heard, crashed into a wall on a country road after drinking fortified wine. He pulled Stephan from the wreckage but then fled, leaving him dying on the ground.

      Agreed. This was a very difficult article to read. Nothing made any sense.

    This is a terribly written article.

    Hi guys, and thanks for the input. Stephan is Stephan Henderson (no relation to Andrew Henderson) - sorry we dropped his surname. I've read the article several more times; what is hard to understand? Two guys beat up and slashed the face of a man just released after 8 years' in jail for a car crash in which Stephan was killed. The boy was the son of a friend of the attackers. They played vigilante and a judge sent them to prison. Have a great new year!
