Hari Farlie, of no fixed address, has been given an eight year prison sentence. He pleaded guilty to a charge of wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm.
On 25 October 2019, officers were called to the car park outside the Moreton Hall pub in Lawson place, Bury St. Edmunds. It was reported that a man had been stabbed during an altercation with four or five males.
The victim was in his twenties and was taken by ambulance to hospital. He was later discharged.
Police say it was a targeted attack that left a young man with life-changing injuries.
24-year-old Farlie appeared at Ipswich Crown Court today, 30 January, where he also received an extended licence period of four years due to him being considered a dangerous offender.
