Jan 11, 2008 Quickie Link: Lenient Sentence on Fatal Assault on a Gay Man
By vanrozenheim

(UK) - A 43-year-old man who attacked a Gay man in a park as he was walking his dogs was jailed for two-and-a-half years. Tony Hoare, 49, died after the attack in Charlton Park, Charlton, where he was punched to the ground by Lesley Kingshott. The blow to his face on the evening of September 11 last year tore an artery at the base of Mr Hoare's brain which caused a fatal swelling. On the night of the fatal attack Mr Hoare, a market researcher, had been drinking in the White Swan pub in Charlton village where he had suffered homophobic abuse. He was later found unconscious in the park and died shortly after being taken to Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Woolwich.
