JUDGES have shown leniency to a Brighouse teenager who attacked his own great grandmother.
Dion Groombridge,who put a cushion over his great grandmother's face so he could steal money from her, has had his 10-year extended sentence of detention reduced on appeal.
Groombridge, 17, was locked up by a judge last September following the attack on his 92-year-old relative at her flat in Elland.
But his barrister Stephen Wood successfully appealed against the length of the sentence at a hearing before three Court of Appeal judges today.
Groombridge's detention was cut from five years to four and the time he would spend on licence once released has been chopped from five years to three years.
