Allan Armbrister Secures Conviction of 3 Men in an Assault Outside a Luxury Leeds HotelPark Square Barristers
Three Men who battered a man in a row over a taxi outside a luxury Leeds hotel have been convicted and sentenced at Leeds Crown Court.
Allan Armbrister prosecuted the case for Leeds CPS.
All three defendants had been convicted following a 5 day trial back in September.
Mr Armbrister told the Court that the defendants carried out an attack after a wedding at the Chevin Lodge Hotel in Otley. The complainant was punched to the ground and then kicked in the head – the attack happened in front of the victim’s partner and children. The victim suffered a fractured eye socket which required surgery.
Jailing the lead defendant to 6 months in custody and imposing custodial sentences on the co-accused’s, Judge Christopher Batty said “”People have to understand that if they fight over taxis at night in a public place the court will not tolerate it.”
