Drink-drive vigilantes jailed
TWO LESS PRESENTS UNDER THE TREE: Two men who attacked, vigilante-style, a man in whose car an eight-year-old was killed were jailed just before Christmas.
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.
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.
