Albany Teenager Jailed

An Albany teenager who struck a man in the head with a hammer before kicking him in the head has been jailed for 10 months.

Andy Rohan Bennell appeared in Albany Magistrate’s Court last Thursday after pleading guilty to assault occasioning bodily harm from the attack, which left the victim with a broken jaw requiring surgery.

Bennell was jailed for 10 months and made eligible for parole after serving half his sentence.
