Sentencing a teenager for a spree of acid attacks in London that left victims with “life-changing injuries”, a judge has warned the violent use of corrosive liquids is a “serious and growing problem” in the UK capital.
At Wood Green Crown Court, Derryck John was sentenced to 10 and a half years in prison for hurling acid at six moped riders in a bid to steal their vehicles within the space of fewer than 90 minutes on July 13th last year.
“These were grave crimes. You attacked members of the public with what appears to have been an acid at the strongest end of the scale of acids,” Noel Lucas QC told the 17-year-old, who appeared in court via video link.
“You have not revealed the name of your accomplice or the precise nature of the corrosive fluid used or where you and your accomplice obtained it.”
