Young man who threw a child from the Tate Modern in London sentenced to a minimum of 15 years in prison

Young man who threw a child from the Tate Modern in London sentenced to a minimum of 15 years in prison

Bravery, currently 18, is diagnosed with autism and personality disorders.

Jonty Bravery, the young British man who in August last year threw a six-year-old boy from the 10th floor of London's Tate Modern, was sentenced today to a minimum of 15 years in prison, a sentence that after that time will be reviewable. 

The judge who announced the sentence asserted that Bravery, currently 18 years old, and who is diagnosed with autism and personality disorders, acted deliberately and was therefore tried for attempted murder, crimes of which he pleaded guilty. "You may never be released" he said to the condemned man.

The minor attacked, who survived a fall of about 30 meters, is a Frenchman who at the time was visiting the museum with his family and suffered a cerebral hemorrhage and fractures in the spine , legs and arms, wounds of which he did not has made a full recovery. 

The life of the boy, who is still hospitalized and in a wheelchair after spending several months in the intensive care unit of a hospital in France, "will never be the same," added the judge.

The fear he must have experienced and the horror his parents felt are beyond imagination. You were planning to kill someone that day. You almost killed that six-year-old boy, "the judge snapped at Bravery, adding that the autism spectrum disorder" does not explain or justify the attack.

In a recording a year earlier, the perpetrator confessed to one of his caregivers that he wanted to kill someone. The Daily Mail, which had access to the audio, detailed at the time that Jonty Bravery says in it that "in the coming months I have to kill someone, I have it in my head", and also claimed that he wanted to go "to central London and push anyone from a high place. 

Despite this warning and since he was admitted to an institution supervised by the State due to his history of aggressions, that day he was allowed to leave without supervision .
