The court heard Akec was bailed for other violent offences just five days before the assault.

Drake said the attackers had "nothing else to do".

"What do you do when you want to have some fun? 'Let's go bash an old guy' - that's their fun.

"In the old days, we used to go swimming and rock climbing."

Drake said it doesn't matter how long the sentence is.

"It doesn't matter if he gets out in six months or six year, if he hasn't learned anything from it."
