Teen Who Went on Acid Attack Spree Jailed

Derryck John, who was 16-years-old when he went on an acid attack spree last July in London, has been jailed for ten years. John, along with an unnamed accomplice, sprayed their victims with acid for the purpose of mugging them.

“John pleaded guilty to six counts of throwing a corrosive fluid with intent to ‘disable, burn maim, disfigure or to do grievous bodily harm’,” ITV reported.

During the two hour acid rampage, John and his accomplice attacked two fast food delivery drivers and four other people.

Judge Noel Lucas QC called John’s attacks “despicable and callous.”
