Carlisle man who bit piece out of teenager's nose jailed

A man who left a 14-year-old boy permanently disfigured after biting a chunk out of his nose has been sent to prison for more than a year.

Carlisle Crown Court heard that Jason Martin Clay, 29, attacked the boy for no reason after a heavy drinking session one evening last September.

He grabbed him round the throat with both hands, threw him to the floor, sat astride him and sank his teeth into his face.

The boy suffered an injury to his nose, in which he lost part of his nostril, which has made him so self conscious he has not been to school since.

Clay, of Holme Terrace, Denton Holme, Carlisle, pleaded guilty to assault, causing actual bodily harm.

He was jailed for 12 months and 24 days.
