Sarah Buckingham Defends in Schoolgirl Stabbing Appeal

Mon, 30 Jul 2012

A teenager who attacked a Stourbridge schoolgirl with a kitchen knife in front of her classmates has lost an appeal against his sentence.
 
Chloe West, aged 14, was stabbed 20 times by 18-year-old Samuel Gayzer-Tomlinson as she walked to school.
 
He was sentenced to 13 years in a young offenders institution after pleading guilty to attempted murder and unlawful wounding at Wolverhampton Crown Court last year.
 
Gayzer-Tomlinson, of Turls Hill Road, Sedgley, challenged the sentence at the Court of Appeal yesterday but it was backed by three senior judges.
