A GANGSTER jailed for battering a boxer with a crook lock in a city restaurant had his sentence reduced. Anthony Mark Richardson was jailed for eight years and four months last December after admitting wounding with intent. Yesterday three judges granted Richardson a sentence reduction of four months after concluding the original sentence failed to properly reflect his guilty plea. Richardson, 32 of Sherwood’s Lane, Fazakerley, was one of three raiders who stormed Kimos , on Myrtle Street, in a revenge attack on boxer Lee Siner. The other members of the gang were armed with a knife and a baseball bat and they stopped Mr Siner as he tried to leave. Mr Justice Coulson, sitting with Lord Justice Gross and Mr Justice Cranston also noted Richardson’s previous good character and remorse.
