Detectives in Lurgan have welcomed the sentencing of three men for grievous bodily harm with intent at Craigavon Magistrates Court following a serious assault that occurred in the Lake Street area of Craigavon on 22 December 2011.
The male victim of the assault was aged 36 at the time.
A 29 year old man was sentenced to 8 years, while a 22 year old man and 21 year old man were both sentenced to 7.5 years each.
Detective Sergeant McKernan said of the sentencing: “The judge described the aggravating features in the case, saying that it was an alcohol-fuelled attack in a public street on a defenceless victim.
“These sentences given should serve as a reminder to anyone who may be tempted to get involved in this kind of act that there is the very real possibility that you will face serious implications.”
