24-MONTH SENTENCE FOR RONNIE MORRIS AFTER SHOOTING MAN WITH BB GUN

Img 292630-year-old Ronnie Morris has been sentenced to 24 months in prison after shooting a man in the face several times with a BB gun.

As previously reported by Island Echo, Police were called at 23:34 on 26th September last year to reports that a man had been assaulted at an address on Union Road in Ryde, during which he was shot in the eye with a BB gun pellet.

Forensic investigators were called to the scene to piece together the events of that night, which led to the arrest of the then 29-year-old Ronnie Morris of Josephs Way in Shanklin.

He was later charged with causing grievous bodily harm with intent and subsequently remanded in custody.

Now, the father-of-2 has been sentenced after pleading guilty to the unlawful wounding, which caused injury to the victim’s face and hand.

Recorder Malcolm Gibney handed down a 24-month sentence and ordered Morris to pay a victim surcharge.

This is what we get when all the low life scum is allowed to walk about uncurfewed and untagged, smacked up doing as it likes and the do gooders stopping proper sentencing and only kiss ass punishment from the courts. It should have been 20 years for having a gun, any sort of gun, and causing deliberate GBH

I knew his grandfather, who also went by the name of Ronnie. He had a bit of a reputation, but I never had any problems with him. His grandfather wouldn’t have done that though. He’d have settled it with his fists.

24 months for GBH with intent. A laughable sentence. Should have been 10yrs minimum.

24 years would have been more appropriate.

Shoots someone, smirks as his photo is taken, gets a light sentence. Should have been executed to save any further potential victims. Dead cert he’ll do something similar as soon as they release him.

Good luck, hope it goes badly for you.
