Attack left victim blind in one eye


IRISHMAN Kian Michael O’G, 22, has been sentenced to seven years in prison for beating another man in Santa Ponça in August 2014.
He was reportedly arguing with a woman near a bar in Calvia when the victim tried to stop him and was punched in the face, causing him to fall down the stairs. The attacker then picked him up and punched him in the face again before kicking him several times. The victim sustained multiple facial and skull fractures, including his nose, jaw and eyes sockets for which he required several operations. It left him with permanent damage to his brain and skull, scars and the loss of sight in one eye as well as his sense of smell. He also has post-traumatic stress disorder.
The accused will pay the victim €273,000 in compensation.
Despite not knowing each other before the attack, both men are from Cork and their parents know each other through work. The defence has asked for the attacker to be allowed to serve his prison sentence in Ireland.
