A MAN has been jailed for an “horrific” Carlisle pub attack which left his victim with a broken jaw and cheekbone.
Peter James Jackson attacked Stephen Neaves on three separate occasions inside The Caledonian, Botchergate, on March 12 last year.
Mr Neaves was grabbed by the throat, punched and left grounded on a toilet floor by an assailant who was said to have adopted a “fighting stance” during his offending.
Carlisle Crown Court heard the victim had lost teeth, been advised not to eat solids after the assault, and also told his “long-lasting effects” could include permanent nerve damage and slight facial disfigurement.
Jackson, 35, was sentenced today (TUES) having admitted causing Mr Neaves grievous bodily harm. Said to have “some mental health problems”, he was described as being “remorseful” for what his lawyer conceded had been an “horrific incident”.
Judge Barbara Forrester jailed Jackson, of Rudchester Close, Carlisle, for two years. “It is very clear you were the aggressor in this sustained and repeated attack upon him,” Judge Forrester told Jackson.
