Professor Green Attacker Jailed For 8 Years
Anthony Jones will serve time in prison for the near-fatal assault on the MC...
A man who stabbed rapper Professor Green in the neck with a broken bottle has been jailed for eight years.
Anthony Jones, who was found guilty of grievous bodily harm with intent at the trial last October, attacked the Jungle MC outside a night club in May 2009, leaving Pro fighting for his life.
Green, real name Stephen Manderson, previously gave evidence at Jones' trial where he claimed "was scared he would die" and that he was "extremely lucky" to be alive after the assault.
The 27-year old rapper, who also admitted to phoning his mother and nan to "say goodbye” after the stabbing, was taken to hospital and has been left with a six-inch scar over a tattoo that ironically reads “lucky.”
A spokesman for the Metropolitan Police confirmed yesterday that Jones had been jailed for eight years at Snaresbrook Crown Court, after judge John Lafferty sentenced him for the "premeditated attack" on the star.
