Man Gets 2 Year Sentence For Attacking Bingo Player

Muggers may find that the little old lady bingo players are easy targets, but once they realize that they stand to get a 2 year sentence or longer – thy may decide to think again.

Barry Clancy, 28, from Aberdeen attacked Margaret Craig, 63, when she was on her way back after a victorious bingo night.

Clancy followed Mrs. Craig, threw her to the ground and whacked her head and body with his leg in an attempt to hold on to her bag which had a total of £300. Eventually, Clancy still got away with the bag.

After much investigation in Aberdeen, Clancy was finally arrested and brought to court where he admitted his crime and subsequently, was sentenced to 28 months of imprisonment. The bingo community has been very concerned after the incident that befell Mrs. Craig, who was a popular personality among the community.

While sentencing Clancy to 28 months of imprisonment, the judge claimed that Clancy was a great threat to the society and he should not be allowed any access to society until he got his life in order. Although, this statement gave no solace to Mrs. Craig, the 28 month punishment will leave other felons to think twice before attacking a bingo player.

On the other hand, this incident will also warn bingo players about taking the long walk home after a game of bingo since they would become the obvious prey to robbery. It is advised that these players use other means of commuting. The bingo halls provide plenty of buses to these members; bingo players can also walk in groups to avoid such crimes in the future.
