Man Has No Remorse For Blinding Girl, Judge Gives Appropriate Sentence

In Birmingham, UK, 24-year-old Blythe Mason-Boyle was brutally attacked by 18-year-old Majid Ali as she unlocked her car in a parking lot. Armed with a hammer, Ali repeatedly struck Mason-Boyle in the head and face, causing severe injuries, including partial blindness in one eye. The stolen vehicle was traced back to Ali, who showed no remorse during his trial.

After being found guilty of robbery, possession of an offensive weapon, and wounding with intent, Ali was sentenced to 9 years in prison. The judge hoped that this would give him time to reflect on his actions and potentially find remorse. Detective Constable Rebecca Woodcock described the attack as ferocious and emphasized the impact it had on Mason-Boyle's physical and emotional well-being.

Mason-Boyle expressed relief that justice had been served but acknowledged that the ordeal had been the toughest time of her life. She continues to struggle with her injured eye and is uncertain if she will fully regain her sight. Seeking counseling to overcome the trauma, she advised others to be vigilant and aware of their surroundings, particularly when getting into their cars after dark.

While Ali's sentence was considered harsher than usual for similar cases, it pales in comparison to the lifelong consequences Mason-Boyle must endure. She will have to manage her trauma and potential permanent injury for the rest of her life. The hope is that Ali will eventually feel some semblance of guilt and remorse during his time in prison.
