In an effort to escape from prison, Shane Jenkin gouged out the eyes of his girlfriend, rendering her blind. Shane Jenkin, 42, was sentenced by the Parole Board to an additional two years in jail. The nurse and his psychiatrist were two of the three witnesses who gave testimony. Tina Nash, the victim, was the only witness who testified in his favour. Nash, who was rendered blind as a result of the incident on April 20, 2011, provided a victim impact statement. Jenkin was given a life sentence for permanently blinding his partner at her Hayle, Cornwall, home in 2012. The night before he attacked Nash, Jenkin watched a video on eye-clawing, according to the testimony given at Truro Crown Court.
Where did Tina end up?
“We can confirm that during an oral hearing at the end of May this year, a panel of the Parole Board rejected Shane Jenkins’ parole,” a Parole Board representative said. Priority is given to whether a prisoner’s potential release will constitute an unacceptable danger to the community and whether or not that threat may be mitigated. Statement: “A panel will thoroughly review a large array of facts, including specifics of the initial crime and any indicators of behavioural change, as well… investigate the harm done and impact that crime has had on the victims” “The safety of the general public is our number one priority. Under current law, he is eligible for a re-examination. After the parole review was completed in May, the Ministry of Justice will decide when the next examination will take place.” In his fifth attempt to get his parole granted, he was denied. Prior to his current confinement, he was admitted to a mental health center for treatment.
The panel had heard the psychologist’s assessment of Mr. Jenkin. The recommendations of Mr. Jenkin’s psychologist, community probation officer, and the person in charge of his case during his imprisonment are that he should remain in jail or prison. I’m not interested in discussing it. Moving to an open environment was opposed by everyone.
