They stamped on a man's head 10 times and avoided going to jail until now

Two brothers from Liverpool have finally been jailed after a vicious attack in Carlisle.

Kenneth Brown, 27, and Shaun Brown, 25, both of Winmoss Drive, Liverpool, subjected a man to a three minute brutal attack on Lowther Street in Carlisle, where they stamped on his head over 10 times leaving him with a broken nose, hand and significant cuts and bruises.

The pair were sentenced earlier this year and handed suspended sentences for the offence. However, they have now been jailed after it was deemed that this was an unduly lenient sentence at a court of appeal after being referred by the Solicitor General to the Unduly Lenient Sentences Scheme.

The brothers were both sentenced on Thursday, 28 June, to three years and six months each for attempting to cause grievous bodily harm. Speaking on the appeal Detective Constable Nick Mandale said “We welcome the revised sentences.

“Kenneth and Shaun subjected the victim to a brutal attack and now will be reflecting on their actions in prison. Such an attack could have killed the victim but luckily, he did not sustain more serious life changing injuries."
