A four-and-a-half year jail sentence handed to a man who killed a pedestrian with a single punch in an unprovoked attack could be referred to the Court of Appeal, the Attorney’s General Office has said. Andrew Young, 40, died after being struck by Lewis Gill, 20, in Bournemouth, Dorset, on November 6 last year, in a vicious assault caught on CCTV. Gill later pleaded guilty to manslaughter and was sentenced at Salisbury Crown Court to four-and-a-half years in prison – a sentence reportedly branded as an “absolute joke” by Mr Young’s family. The Attorney General’s Office has confirmed it is considering whether to refer the sentence to the Court of Appeal for being unduly lenient after receiving complaints. Only one complaint is required to trigger the process. Report by Lindsay Brown.

$ 1/2 yr.s in prison? Bet that if this was a white guy he would have got twice that.
