A career criminal who was left brain-damaged after being beaten by the family he held hostage was spared prison only to go on a fresh crime spree, which courts refused to prosecute him for as he was ruled unfit to plead.
Meanwhile the man who injured him whilst defending his family is serving a 2 and half year prison sentence.
The 57-year-old convicted criminal previously invaded a UK millionaire’s home with a gang of knife-wielding hoodlums, threatening to kill the family he captured if they resisted.
However, the robbery went awry and the burglars were attacked by their victims, with the gang’s leader being caught and severely beaten.
Police however saw fit to arrest the burglary victim, with courts finding him and his brother guilty of inflicting grievous bodily harm and handing each several years in prison, whilst courts subsequently released the burglar on the grounds that his injuries prevented his trial or imprisonment.
After being hospitalised for two weeks the burglar immediately returned to his life of crime, being charged with a number of offences, but courts refused to prosecute him due to his injuries, which included “brain damage,” a fractured skull and a broken jaw, ruling that although he was evidently fit to commit crime, he was not fit to stand trial.
