Professor Green Attacker Faces 'Very Substantial' Jail Term
Anthony Jones will be sentenced next month...
Professor Green's attacker, Anthony Jones, has been warned by a judge that he faces a 'very substantial' jail term when he is sentenced for the assault on the MC.
As we reported yesterday, Jones was found guilty of GBH with intent, after the jury heard how he stabbed the I Need You Tonight hitmaker in the neck with a broken bottle, leaving Pro fighting for his life in the incident last May.
According to The Sun, Judge John Lafferty, who fronted the case at Snaresbrook Crown Court, claimed that Jones made up a 'cock and bull story' to explain his attack on the rapper, where he showed 'no remorse' for leaving Green with a six inch scar on his neck.
The 25-year old, who initially denied he was responsible for the assault on Green, real name Stephen Manderson, has been remanded in custody.
A police source told the tabloid: "Jones is one of life's losers who was no doubt jealous of Green."
Judge Lafferty told Jones he will face a length prison term attacking the Prof, when he is sentenced on 10th November.
