Hellfire Attempted Murder Accused Gets 3 Years
A man has been jailed for three years for the attempted murder of a young camper at Dublins Hell Fire Club in June 2016.
Michael Corbett, of Woodbine Close in Raheny in north Dublin, stabbed the then 17-year-old and also attacked his girlfriend and a male friend.
The court heard he was in the throes of a psychotic episode at the time.
The judge handed down a nine year sentence but the suspended the final six years and ordered he be closely monitored post-release.
Outside court afterwards, those attacked said they were bitterly disappointed with today’s sentence.
One said: "It's ridiculous to think that a man that tried to kill three young people can get away so easily.
"Six years suspended is one of the most ridiculous things I've ever heard - but if there's one thing my father taught me... it's law not justice."
