Australia guarantees corby wouldnt breach parole by attacking fellow inmates
A teenager was jailed for three years for threatening fellow prisoners with a knife on the weekend after he was sentenced to three years of rigorous community service.
Jarrad McEvoy, 15, was jailed for the offence, which was one of six attacks that took place from mid-November until March this year, when the victim was taken to hospital with a broken hand.
Mr McEvoy was found guilty of intimidating a fellow prisoner with a knife by cutting himself and then punching him i청주출장샵n the face in the middle of the night. He was handed a nine-month sentence which must serve immediately and is to be served in the same facility as his victim, who had also been attacked the previous time.
The sentence marks the first conviction in relation to such an act since the Government introduced the law in April 2013.

The victim, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was taken to hospital with a broken hand on November 10, the same night Mr McEvoy attacked him.
Police initially arrested the 16-year-old because it emerged the 16-year-old’s ‘friend’ had also attacked him with a blade in March this year.
In his sentencing memorandum, Judge Sir Michael Harvey, QC, explained the circumstances behind the attack.
He said: ‘It appears that Jarrad McEvoy was at the house with a knife when he was given a drink. The knife was left hanging from the bed while the other party was sleeping.’
The judge added: ‘The other party woke up and he realised what had happened. I am satisfied that he would be prepared to act in the same way if he was in prison.’
It was later discovered that Mr McEvoy was in possession of a knife at the time of the assault on the fellow prisoner.
When questioned about the knife at the hospital, Mr McEvoy said: ‘I had stolen it from one of the other prisoners but he told me he had no idea when he saw me taking it that I was going to kill my fellow prisoner.’
Following the attack, another prisoner at the facility told the same story to police.
