Justice served on one of the Ozil and Kolasinac attackers including video

Mugger sentenced for attempted robbery of Mesut Ozil and Sead Kolasinac.

One of the muggers that targeted Mesut Ozil and Sead Kolasinac has been handed down a significant prison sentence.

The pair was attacked by 30-year-old Ashley Smith and his accomplice, Jordan Northover, last July.

Smith had previously pleaded guilty to attempted robbery and has been sentenced to ten years in one of her majesty’s prison.

He appeared in court for his sentencing on Friday via video link and will now spend the next decade in prison.

Part of the attempted robbery was captured on CCTV and soon went viral.

The duo’s watches worth over £200,000 were the targets of the robbers but Kolasinac bravely fought off the muggers.

Ozil had struggled for form earlier this season but has forced his way back into contention. Kolasinac had been the first choice left-back while new signing Kieran Tierney recovered from injury.

Smith’s accomplice, Jordan Northover, has yet to be sentenced.

    Whoever framed the charges was either incompetent or compromised because according to this video evidence the muggers were armed.It should have been attempted robbery with violence which is a capital offence under common law jurisdiction and carries a life or a death sentence.Attempted robbery that’s a misdemeanor and the judge used his discretion to give a minimum sentence but at least someone was convicted.

      Er we don’t have the death sentence in this country mate…🤔

        He’s a loon.
        A life sentence for a robbery with a knife in a civilised country? FFS, even attempted murder is usually around 10 – 20 years in civilised countries, while actual murder from 30 – life.

        And no, civilised countries do not have the death penalty.
        The state murdering criminals so that the victims’ families can get revenge is based on the basest emotions without any other justification. The death penalty costs massively more than life in prison due to the cost of legal appeals and–more importantly–at the same time the death penalty has been proven to statistically not prove a deterrent AT ALL. Look it up if you don’t believe me.

      This is Europe.
      We don’t sentence people to 25 years because they smoke weed like in America.
      10 years is more than enough for these thugs.

      1. Sue says:

        I can’t see 10 years being 10 years though. Knowing this country, he’ll be out long before then! 😳

  2. Simon says:

    ten years is mild,they could have harmed these players…. will the sentence be this mild if they attacked a briton?

    1. Declan says:

      Oh dear, really, you just said that! 🤦‍♂️

    2. Aderoy says:

      What a careless and absurd comment to insinuate there’s foul play in the judgement handed down. Your comment smacks of complete ignorance of how the justice system work in the UK. I find your comment quite frankly offensive, and I am not even English. Zip it 🤐 if you do not understand what you tried desperately to ridicule.

    3. Goonster says:

      I don’t know what kind of conspiratorial universe some of you people live in.
      Illuminati, 9/11 truthers, Flat earthers etc..
      Some have even been speculating that the Arsenal Board helped by Emery orchestrated this crime.

    It’s daylight robbery!

      Oh ThirdMan, hehe

    Simon, I’m not sure what it is your impying with that remark – care to explain a little further?

    1. jon fox says:

      Ken, I believe I know exactly what he is implying. and it is clear that he sees a difference in importance between Brits and non Brits being attacked. Otherwise he would not write as he did. As such i am too disgusted to speak directly to him, since i do not wish to be around such people , even on line. I suggest you drop it as he is not a man worth wasting your intellect upon. Others will and indeed already have, also noted his disgusting comments.
