This is the statement issued on behalf of the family of victim Adrian Cooksey.
Whatever sentence passed would never be enough to satisfy us. Richard Elmes has continued to lie and avoid the truth.
This was supposed to be our Dad's friend. It has now been clarified that he punched our Dad to the ground and left him lying there.
How anyone can live with this and continue to lie to save their own skin deserves to have the key thrown away.
Our family has been dealt a life sentence by this man.
