Sentencing For Man Convicted in North Sydney Beating Case
One of the people charged after a brutal assault on a homeless man in North Sydney is due back in court today to be sentenced. 34 year-old James Darren Clarke from North Sydney was found guilty earlier this month of obstruction of justice in the case for hiding a wrench that police say was used in the attack. A charge of attempted murder against Clarke was withdrawn. He’s been remanded while he awaits sentencing. Clarke is among six people who’ve been charged in relation to the July attack on 48-year-old Shawn Curtis Jack. Jack suffered serious head injuries and was sent to hospital in Halifax for treatment.
