- BBM Party Attacker Found Guilty, Sentenced To Life In Prison
  • BBM Party Attacker Found Guilty, Sentenced To Life In Prison

    You may remember back in April a horrific story about an attack that happened at a RIM sponsored party in London. The event was a social media celebration of BlackBerry Messenger and was taking place at the Pulse nightclub in the south of London. Ashley Charles, originally accused of killing RIM executive Phillip Sherriff, was found guilty of the crime and given a life sentence, where Charles will serve at least a minimum of 14 years.

    Charles, 26, was present at the event that April evening as was Mr. Sherriff when a scuffle broke out at the bar area. The singer Jesse J had just finished performing at the time when Charles grabbed a bottle from Sherriff's hand, swung it and slashed the victim's neck. Mr. Sherriff passed away four days later from his sustained injuries.

    "You clearly became annoyed at what you perceived was the conduct of Mr Sherriff and lost your temper when he may have pushed against you at the bar", the presiding judge mentioned to Charles at the sentencing. "I am satisfied you did not intend to kill Mr Sherriff and you were immediately remorseful," he said.

    Phillip Sherriff's wife, Jane, said that Charles actions had "devastated so many people's lives" but, "I'm glad justice has been done." Mrs. Sherriff went on to say in her statement that Phillip Sherriff's organs had been donated, saving the lives of three other people.

    All in all, a huge tragedy that surely should not have happened.
