Bashing of two elderly men, one a cancer patient

Jarrod appeals sentence over bashed elderly men

THE sentence handed to a man who bashed two Hervey Bay men, aged 64 and 73, outside a Brisbane pub will be appealed after the Attorney-General branded it 'manifestly inadequate'.

Attorney-General and Minister for Justice Jarrod Bleijie said Dylan Bradley Castle was convicted of grievous bodily harm and serious assault for assaulting Graham Law and his brother-in-law Terry White, and sentenced to four-and-a-half years imprisonment, with eligibility for parole after serving 18 months.

Mr Bleijie said the sentence was manifestly inadequate, not in line with community expectations, did not set an adequate deterrent and had to be appealed.

He has instructed the Director of Public Prosecutions to appeal the sentence which was handed down in the Brisbane District Court on May 2.
