14 years from Robber who stabbed dog in knifepoint attack at Leeds home – Howard Shaw and Allan Armbrister instructed

A masked knifepoint robbery where a mum was threatened in front of her young son and her dog was stabbed has resulted in the attacker being sentenced to 14 years in prison.

The defendant Craig Hope was wearing a skull mask when he broke into the house in Armley, Leeds in August last year.

Hope pleaded guilty to robbery at this trial in February at Leeds Crown Court.

Howard Shaw prosecuted the case and Allan Armbrister defended.
