Cumbrian law student detained over attack

A Cumbrian student has been detained for breaking a fellow student's jaw.

David Keefe, 20, of Spencer Street, Carlisle was studying criminology and law at the University of Cumbria's Carlisle campus.

He was convicted of inflicting grievous bodily harm on Daniel Johnson in the halls of residence in Carlisle on the afternoon of 15 December.

He was also found guilty of affray and was sent to a young offenders' institution for 18 months.

The court heard Keefe had an argument with Mr Johnson, then knocked him down and repeatedly punched him as he lay on the floor, knocking him out and fracturing his jaw.
