Five years? jail follows stabbing

A MAN who stabbed a man in a Rockhampton street while on a suspended sentence for armed robbery was yesterday jailed for more than five years.

Barry James Kemp, 19, pleaded guilty in Rockhampton District Court to one count of unlawful wounding on August 26 last year.

The court heard that Kemp had been on a suspended jail sentence after previously holding a knife to the throat of a pizza delivery boy.

The Crown said the latest offence occurred after he and two companions became involved in a brawl with two men.

Kemp produced a knife and stabbed a 21-yearold complainant several times, leaving him with wounds including a 6cm gash which required surgery.

Judge Grant Britton sentenced Kemp to five years and five months jail.
