Grimsby nightclub doorman sentenced for brutal attack on patron


James Turgoose has today been sentenced to 15 months' imprisonment suspended for two years, 300 hours' unpaid work, six days of rehabilitation and ordered to pay £3,000 compensation to his victim, after being convicted of grievous bodily harm following an incident at Hype Bar, Grimsby on 6 November 2015.

Jeremy Evans from the CPS said: "This was a brutal attack, captured on CCTV, on a man who simply wanted to ensure his girlfriend got home safely. Turgoose quite deliberately struck the victim with a devastating blow to the face which fractured his jaw, eye socket and nose.

"Despite claiming he acted in self-defence, and telling lies about the whole incident, the CCTV footage speaks for itself, and the jury found Turgoose guilty after only 35 minutesí deliberation."


Jeremy Evans is a Crown Advocate for CPS Yorkshire and Humberside.
