Let's hope he is given the Maximum sentence currently 4 years and a large fine Harsher sentences are the way to deter those thinking of carrying weapons

Thought it was 10 year mandatory for carrying a knife, little pricks 18yrs old so he's an adult and should be setenced accordingly, about time these little scroats were sorted out.
