VIOLENT BOTTLE ATTACKER JAMIE SIMPSON SENTENCED TO MORE THAN 4 YEARS IN PRISON

30-year-old Jamie Simpson has been sentenced to 51 months in prison after attacking a 21-year-old local woman with a glass bottle just days before Christmas.

On 20th December last year, whilst the pair were attending a wake at a property on Lake Hill, an argument erupted between Simpson and 21-year-old Yavana Dix. The court heard how Dix threw champagne over Jamie – who was in drink – and in retaliation he hit her with a glass bottle.

The young woman was left with blood pouring from her head and required stitches in hospital.

Although Simpson tried to help Yavana up off the floor he ran away before Police arrived on scene. This prompted an appeal to be launched which later led to his arrest at his mother’s house.

The Isle of Wight Crown Court heard today (Thursday) how Simpson, of Culver Parade in Sandown, is a ‘good father’ and had been a ‘model resident’ during his time on remand at HMP Isle of Wight. This is despite previously being found guilty of 3 counts of assault and being an occasional user of cocaine.

Simpson pleaded guilty to assault occasioning grievous bodily harm without intent.

Judge Susan Evans said that violence against women seems to be nothing new for the 30-year-old, who becomes violent when he drinks. He is said to pose a significant risk to the public.

Jamie Simpson was handed down a 4-year 3-month prison sentence of which 27 months will be served in custody. He was also given a permanent restraining order preventing him from contacting Miss Dix in the future. He must also pay costs of £120.

It’s unbelievable what bent briefs come up with in Island courts. Presumably the judge saw through this with her own comments.

Now let’s see how “hard” he is in prison.
Can’t stand men having a go at a female, because their too gutless to have a go at a man.

I would call him an animal, but that would be an insult to animals.
Not enough time given, it should be at least ten years…

I’m afraid to say ,if I was at the wake and saw that disgusting attack on a defenceless woman, he would have to be drinking through a straw, as to the broken jaw that he well deserved!

Lets all think for a minute , the victim in this case instigated the issue by first tipping champagne on the aggressor ! Can I ask you to think , if the young lady had not poured champagne over him would he have attacked her ! I am sorry to say this but whilst I do not condone anyone attacking anyone and his actions were deplorable she should NOT have tipped a drink on him and surely that should have been taken into account.

I didn’t smash a bottle into a female face if a drink was thrown at me for being a little drunk, how can you actually type your comments – Utterly beyond me to see your reasoning (Appalling)

Well I have to ask ,if you think that’s ok, maybe you would do the same? And let me guess, your 25 or less? I’ve dealt with people like you before in a job I did, and they always ended up crying!

I completely agree, he was provoked. How many men get violent when they drink? Err alot of them! Someone at the wake should’ve stopped the argument before it got out of hand!

I wonder if she was one of those loud mouthed screechy females? Those sort of women would antagonise anyone, especially some drunken waste of space drug user.
Like attracts like, usually. Sounds like chav central.

You are very naughty, Mr. Lewis. This is a serious case of assault which could have ruined a lady’s looks and the perpatrator has ruined his own life, and probably his backdoor integrity, through the ungentlemanly conduct of bottling a woman. You ought not to wind up the public in such a manner. Slap on the wrist for you from Lady Dunne-Standing! A real man in this situation would have wrung out his clothes and not wasted Champagne. What a wasteful bully!

haha, “lady” ??? Going by the picture, I think not.
Lady usually implies decorum, grace, elegance, I see nothing that resembles any of that in the picture of the ‘victim’ posted here.

Vile excuse for a human being. Violent when he drinks. Let’s hope he gets a taste of his own medicine by a man when he’s in prison.

What on earth was Judge Susan Evans thinking of! I pathetic sentence, surely she could have given a longer one – and if she could – why didn’t she? Judges are just not in touch with the real world.
