Caged for a blind rage


A WOMAN who blinded her sis­ter’s boyfriend by stab­bing him in the EYE has been sent to jail.

Crazed Ju­lia Harper, 20, leapt on the man’s back be­fore punc­tur­ing his right eye dur­ing a drunken ar­gu­ment last De­cem­ber.

Christo­pher Lowe, pros­e­cut­ing, told Not­ting­ham Crown Court: “The de­fen­dant at­tacked him from be­hind, strik­ing him in the right eye with a sharp­ened im­ple­ment.

“She struck with such force it pierced the eye.

“He’s had to give up his em­ploy­ment and he can­not see his own chil­dren’s faces.”

Harper, from Not­ting­ham, pleaded guilty to a charge of un­law­ful wound­ing.

Sen­tenc­ing her to three years, Judge An­drew Hamil­ton told her: “You’ve com­pletely ru­ined his life.

“It’s a most ap­palling in­jury to in­flict on any­one.”
