Two Ashford men have been jailed for a total of 22 years today for a hammer attack on their victim.
Tony Gibson, 32 and pal Matthew Rogers, 30 lured their victim to an Ashford flat and attacked him.
Now a judge at Canterbury Crown Court has ruled that Gibson, of Bond Road, Ashford poses a danger to the public.
He will have to serve two-thirds of the sentence before he can even be considered for parole.
She told him that there were two sides to him – a hard-working man...”but you also have a dangerous side”.
Rogers, of Richard Hillary Close, Willesborough was jailed for 10 years.
Both men had denied wounding their victim with intent in February last year but were convicted by a jury.
The court heard how the victim Michael Lewington was out with a friend when he saw Gibson.
Gibson invited him to a party at a flat in High Street where Rogers was staying at the time.
But when he walked into the flat he was confronted by a group of men – and Gibson immediately attacked him with a mallet.
