Judge’s com­ments

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Uk&world Update -

MR Mathers’ part­ner, 18year-old daugh­ter, two step sons and work col­leagues were in court to hear Judge Ham­mond pass sen­tence on him.

Jail­ing Joyce, the judge said: “Af­ter the col­li­sion he es­caped like a coward, leav­ing a man dead.

“It’s the worst case of ag­gra­vated ve­hi­cle tak­ing I’ve ever come across, or ever heard of.

“No sen­tence I pass can fairly re­flect the loss of the life of an in­no­cent, de­cent, de­voted fam­ily man.”

In a let­ter to the court, Joyce’s girl­friend, who also lives in Or­ton Gold­hay, Peter­bor­ough, said that he deeply re­gret­ted what he had done and the heartache caused to the de­ceased’s man’s fam­ily.
