Attack with a metal pipe leads to no jail time

Man, 71, spared jail for attack on wife - ChronicleLive In the UK a man attacked his wife with a metal pipe. He will serve no time in jail. That will teach him a lesson, just not the one I would like him to learn. Well he was in jail for 125 days (4 months) last year. But the fact that he is 71 shouldn't enter into it. You shouldn't get a free pass to break the law just because you are an old geezer, but apparently the judges in the UK feel differently.

He was under the "control" of a court order at the time of the attack, so his "conditional release" probably won't impact his behavior at all.

No wonder the UK has a crime problem.
