A teenager from Ixworth has been sent to a Young Offenders’ Institution for four years after stabbing his father in March.
Ipswich Crown Court heard today that Daryl Treevers, 19, knifed his father, Maxwell, 34 times after becoming upset about a row over a printer at the family home in Stow Road.
Treevers then dialled 999 and told ambulance staff’I have stabbed my father’, the court was told.
Treevers surrendered himself to armed police who were called to the incident on March 3.
Maxwell Treevers spent a week in hospital recovering from his injuries.
Daryl Treevers earlier pleaded guilty to wounding with intent to cause greivous bodily harm. He blamed the incident on his father’s alleged behaviour towards himself and his mother in previous years.
Julian Christopher, in mitigtion, said this had not been premeditated and was completely out of character ‘arising from a state of extreme agiltation’.
Judge John Devaux said he did not consider the teenager would be a threat to the public when he was released. To protect Maxwell Treevers Judge Devaux imposed a restraining order banning Daryl Treevers from going within two miles of Stow Road for an indefinite period. The 291 days the defendant had spent in custody would be deducted from his sentence
