Bury St Edmunds: Judge runs out of patience and jails club attack duo

TWO SUFFOLK men have been jailed by a judge who ran out of patience with them after they reoffended within weeks of him giving them suspended prison sentences.

Joshua Stoggles, 21, and Saksit Hemsing, 23, were given a chance to stay out of trouble by Judge David Goodin in September after they were involved in a late night attack outside the Brazilia nightclub in Bury St Edmunds which left a teenager with a suspected broken nose.

However, within a month of being given suspended prison sentence the pair were involved in another late night violent incident outside the same nightclub, Ipswich Crown Court heard

Jailing Stoggles for 26 weeks and Hemsing for 18 weeks Judge Goodin said he was obliged to implement part of the earlier suspended prison sentences.

“You have learned absolutely nothing from that experience,” said the judge.

In September Stoggles, of Worcester Close, Bury St Edmunds, Hemsing, of Tomline Walk, Bury St Edmunds and a 19-year-old man admitted assaulting 18-year-old Shane Carter causing him actual bodily harm during an incident in March.

Stoggles was given a seven month prison sentence suspended for 12 months and Hemsing was given a five month sentence suspended for 12 months.

Both men were also ordered to do unpaid work in the community and to pay compensation to Mr Carter.

On that occasion the court heard that Mr Carter had stopped to have a cigarette with friends after leaving Brazilia when he was punched in the face and ribs and dragged into the road

After he fell to the ground, he was punched and kicked and begged his attackers to stop. The court heard that during the incident one of Mr Carter’s attackers was seen to stamp on his face three times.

Yesterday Michael Crimp, prosecuting said that on October 12 Stoggles, Hemsing and some of their friends were captured on CCTV being involved in a violent incident with a group of other men in a car park at the back of Brazilia’s.

The incident was quickly over due to the arrival of police but while it was taking place some of those taking part were seen to pick up pieces of wood.

Stoggles later told police he’d been punched outside a fast food shop by a member of the other group and was about to go home when he heard shouting and swearing in the car park.

He told police he had picked up a piece of wood to scare the other group but during a “scrabble” between the two groups he had dropped the wood and had run off.

Stoggles and Hemsing admitted using threatening behaviour and being in breach of a suspended sentence.

Charles Myatt for both men said Hemsing had initially kept himself apart from the trouble but had become involved on the supur of the moment.

He said the trouble had not been of his clients’ making and had kicked off after a member of the other group pointed to the car park

Mr Myatt said Stoggles was hoping to join the army.
