MAN WHO BATTERED BIRKENHEAD CABBIE AFTER BEING REFUSED FARE WALKS FREE FROM JAIL


A cafe owner battered a cabbie in a drunken attack when he refused to give him a lift. According to the Liverpool Echo, Karl Brady set upon Leonidas Mochovik after the PHV driver took exception to being told to “speak English”. Brady, 36, from Bromborough, repeat- edly hit him in the head, then started kicking the victim. But he walked free from Liverpool Crown Court after say- ing that if he was jailed, eight workers at his two cafes would lose their jobs. Argyle Satellite Taxis worker Mr Mochovik arrived in Rock Ferry, at 1.20am last July 14 where Brady and a woman got in his car, but when Mr Mochovik started speaking, Brady told him: “Speak English.” The victim who was speaking English but with a strong accent said he wasn’t going to take the


fare and phoned his taxi dispatcher. However, Brady punched him in the side of the head and when the victim continued making the phone call, hit him several times. Brady got out of the car, walked around


to the driver’s door and opened it, before kicking Mr Mochovik, until a man pulled him away. The victim suffered a black eye, a scratch to his head and complained of a sore head. Mr Mochovik took a week off work and lost £800 to £1,000 in takings. Brady was charged with racially aggra- vated common assault, but the prosecution accepted his guilty plea to


the lesser offence of common assault. Judge Stuart Driver, QC, told Brady: “The maximum sentence is six months. There are aggravating features - he’s a taxi driver, that’s an occupation that makes him vulnerable. “Second, you’ve got a lot of previous convictions for violence, though I accept nothing of that sort since 2013.” The judge handed Brady three months in prison, suspended for 12 months, with a 20-day Rehabilitation Activity Requirement. He told Brady to pay Mr Mochovik £800 in compensation, at a rate of £100 per month, and made a ten-year restraining order to protect the victim. The judge reserved any breaches to himself and warned: “If I see you again, it’s highly likely you’re going to prison for three months.”
