A 13 year old boy was stabbed by a drunken 55 year old Isobel Mackenzie after he refused to stop playing his Xbox. Mackenzie denied assaulting the boy, claiming he inflicted the wound on himself to get her in trouble. One must wonder if that was before or after Mackenzie willfully admitted to being drunk and neglecting the boy while in her care last December.
The boy claims that when the argument over the Xbox began, he was pushed on to his chair and it was then he noticed that she had a knife. The boy says when he got up and in an attempt to push her back, he was stabbed. Mackenzie was found guilty by the jury at Inverness Sheriff Court after a 3 day trial.
Despite being found guilty, she won’t be doing any time in jail. Mackenzie was sentenced to 300 hours of community service. This seems very surprising considering Sheriff Neilson said her crime against the child was “very serious.”
I’m not one to say things, but when some drunk psycho lady stabs a 13 year old, she needs to be locked away. That’s just my opinion on the matter, but what do I know, right? I guess Scotland does things differently
