SUSPENDED SENTENCE FOR DORSET MAN WHO THREW CABBIE IN ROAD AND BROKE HIS HIP

According to the Dorset Echo, Thomas Colin Hogben, 31, from Bournemouth, pleaded guilty to one count of inflicting grievous bodily harm after he assaulted Mohammed Sahli in November last year. He appeared at Bournemouth Crown Court for sentencing. Prosecuting, Stuart Ellacott told the court: “For some reason the defendant and a colleague felt Mr Sahli’s driving was worthy of comment. The colleague approached the victim and told him he was driving too fast. The defendant opened the passenger door [of the taxi], saying ‘What are you doing?’ and ‘I know where you live.’


“Mr Sahli got out and remonstrated with the two and he was then grabbed by the coat, around the scruff of his neck, swung round and thrown on to the road. He landed heavily which led to a fractured hip.” The court heard how Mr Sahli was unable to work for a month and had to rely on friends for financial support and he lost around £1,000 as a result of the attack.

In mitigation, the probation officer said: “He recognises he has an anger management problem and he wants to do something about it.” The court heard how Hogben’s anger issues stem back to his childhood, including being taken into care at 11.

According to the Chester Standard, Michael Buckley, 52, from Ellesmere Port, pleaded guilty to assault by beating at Chester Magistrates Court on Tuesday, July 20.
