Jail for thug who stamped on man’s head

A VIOLENT thug who stamped on his man’s head in a terrifying and unprovoked attack has been jailed for eight years.

Timothy Aherne, aged 33, fractured his victim’s jaw and left him with “multiple” injuries to his face.

He was found guilty, following a four-day trial, of causing grievous bodily harm with intent and was jailed yesterday.

The incident happened at about 7pm on April 12 last year when the 32-year-old victim and his two friends were on their way to one of their homes in Longfield Road, Bolton.

As they got out of the taxi they saw Aherne, who invited them into his flat for a drink.

In an unprovoked attack, Aherne, of St Helens Road, punched the man three times in the head, pushed him to the ground and stamped on his head repeatedly.

Aherne threatened to kill his victim and continued to stamp on his head until one of the other men managed to drag him off.

He was pushed out of the back door and they watched him walk back to his flat.

Det Con Stuart Round, from Bolton CID, said: “Aherne subjected his victim to a totally unprovoked, sustained attack, which left him with a fractured jaw and multiple injuries to his face.

“This kind of violence will not be tolerated and this sentence reflects that, if you resort to serious violence, then you are likely to spend a considerable time in prison.”

Sounds like a nice guy, I used to box regularly and competitively, perhaps he'd like to come for a pint with me one night.

Justice has been made. Get rid of the riff raff from this town too many are here. I'll vote Torries to get rid of these unsociable free loaders.

Why are jail terms over-reported? The truth is that jail scum pretends to be reformed, get released halfway through their term ... and then do it again.

There's only one effective and permanent solution for lunatics like this clown

This absolute COWARD & PEICE OF SCUM, THEY SHOULD HAVE GIVEN THIS BARSTEWARD A FULL 10yr MINUMUM STRETCH WITH CATEGORY "A" PRISONERS. An one of them might make him, one of their B.I.T.C.H'S. Then see how he feels about that, the cnut.
