Primary School Kid Mugger Dragged Back To School To Apologise

Primary School Kid Mugger Dragged Back To School To Apologise

In China justice was not just done but was also seen to be done for a mugger who stole money from primary school kids to buy alcohol, when his trial took place in front of the entire school.

Hundreds of kids were lined up in the school playground on seats to watch as the court heard the case against 26-year-old Li Nan.

Li had targeted the kids from the school in the city of Xi'an in west China's Shaanxi province dozens of times, stealing a total of 20 GBP that he then spent on alcohol.

The court heard that he would steal whatever amount the kids had even when in some cases it was only 1p, but despite the low amount the court failed to show the college graduate any mercy and he was jailed for 10 years.

Judge Yong Chang said that there was no doubt the robberies had been a terrifying experience for the young children when they were threatened by the much older man – and he needed to be sent away for a long time as an example to others.

He told the court that after graduating he had failed to get a job, and had turned to alcohol when he ended up on the street. As well as 10 years in jail he was also ordered to pay 1,000 GBP in compensation to his victims, who had mostly been aged between six and nine.

Before he was led away he addressed the kids, telling them to stay away from alcohol which he blamed for all his troubles.
