A MAN who launched a ‘shocking’ and ‘sustained’ attack on two people in a nightclub toilet has been jailed.

Rhys Edward Ellard, of Cobham Drive, Weymouth, pictured right, admitted two counts of assault occasioning actual bodily harm.

Prosecutor Anita Gibson-Lee told Dorchester Crown Court that Ellard, 20, followed the two victims to the bathroom after ‘some sort of bumping into each other’ by an arcade machine in Aura on September 15 last year.

CCTV footage played to the court showed a short conversation taking place before the defendant punched both victims, one of whom was an off-duty police officer.

Miss Gibson-Lee said one victim had to have his eyebrow glued together by paramedics, leaving a permanent scar, and the other was left with bruising and swollen cheeks.

She added that the off-duty police officer had said in a statement: “I was disgusted in the way he had acted. He was violent and aggressive, and acted like a bully.”

Mitigating, Richard Tutt said Ellard had shown ‘genuine remorse’.

He said: “The footage shows a shocking period of 30 seconds to a minute of behaviour which plainly can’t be justified.”

Mr Tutt added that since the incident, 20-year-old Ellard has referred himself for treatment to tackle his alcohol dependency and found steady employment.

Ellard’s mother was also invited to give evidence to the court of her son’s character.

She said: “He is really ashamed of himself. I have told him how disappointed I am in him. I know he can change and I know our family will help him do it.”

Judge Roger Jarvis noted that the offence happened just three days after the completion of the defendant’s licence period following his release from jail on previous matters.

He jailed Ellard for 10 months on each of the new offences, to be served concurrently. Judge Jarvis said: “It is unfortunately part of what is a developing pattern.

“It is perfectly obvious that what you have done has caused a great deal of anxiety and stress to your family and those close to you.

“I keep in mind that there are facets of your character which are laudable. You are hard working and people speak very highly of you.

“I have had to look at images which in my judgement show a shocking incident.”

Judge Jarvis added: “You are far too fond of your fists and there is something of a Jekyll and Hyde about you. This was a sustained, repeated assault.”

Brother in contempt of court

THE defendant’s brother Dale Ellard was held in contempt of court after shouting at the judge.

As Rhys Ellard was led to the cells, his brother called out and swore from the public gallery.

Judge Roger Jarvis ordered him to be arrested and to temporarily be held in the cells.

Dale Ellard later apologised for his actions when he was brought to the dock.

Judge Jarvis said: “Looking at those images, a judge couldn’t do anything other than consider a sentence of imprisonment.

“I’m going to accept your apology but you must never behave like that if you come into court again.

“If there is heard to be another outburst, you won’t be dealt with so leniently.”

Don't tell me, Claire:

He is a rough diamond.
He has a heart of gold.
He was bullied at school
He has anger management issues which he is working on.
He took it hard when dad split from mum.
He was just about to make a new start in life.
This nasty Government should never have cut his welfare.
He is misunderstood
He would do anything for anyone.

A good person would not beat up a couple of people because they may have bumped into him, there is no excusing that. He clearly thinks he is some kind of hard man, lets hope he does not take that attitude into prison with him, I don't think he would last long in there like that.

Indeed, maybe he did keep his head down then, shame he did not learn how to act like a decent human being. Just kept on acting like a thug and back in he goes, good.

Claire - I understand your desire to support Rhys. But there appears to be some discrepancy in opinion in that his mother feels he needs to change but you are suggesting he's a good person who doesn't need to change. I would suggest he is a young man who needs to change his behaviour with the help and support of his friends and family but that trying to justify his behaviour is not the best way to help him.
Regarding your response to my earlier comment, I'm sure I would have an intense reaction to seeing a loved one sent to prison but I'm also sure I wouldn't be agressive and abusive to the judge for carrying out his duty. His brother must have known that a prison sentence was likely so it can't simply be dismissed as a 'heat of the moment' reaction.

The thing is Claire, that most people reading this think 'another dead beat drunk whose too handy for his own good' and expect him to bounce in and out of prison for the next 40 years..

He's standing at a crossroad now, he can decide that prison is not for him and keep off the grog when he comes out, or he can stay as he is. It's his choice and none of his family however loving can do it for him.

I hope for the sake of those who loves him he chooses the right path.

So he was in the "wrong place at the wrong time" when he was charged with battery aged 15, then sent down for 14 months for GBH when he was 18 and now this! No I do not know the guy but he sounds like a nasty piece of work. If your family then yes you love and support him, but that support has to be a recognition that he has a problem and he is not displaying the attributes of a good person at the moment, but if you tell him he is, despite his failings he will carry on beating people up when he has a drink. I hope his second spell inside allows him to correct his behaviour, but his family need to accept his failings and not blame others. To arrest a brother for contempt sends out the wrong signals.

So this man had been in troulble before for violent behavior and only out for 3 days before he hits out again.

Prison has not helped him so perhaps a new form of punisment might help?

So how about he gets up at 5:00 each morning to d a few hours of real hard comunity work, then to his job, after work back for a few more hours of community work then to bed.

No weekends off or holidays and no time to get into trouble.

Keep this up for say 12 months ans see if he can behave normally.

Next time 24 months and so on untill he learns.

Yea but you still said that his family haven't said he's done wrong when clearly it states his mum saying he's done wrong!!
Maybe his parents don't want to comment due to the nasty comments by you lot!! Just because their son has gone to prison doesn't mean you should slate the rest of the family!! It's horrible they r devastated about what's been put in the echo then have to read you horrible comments!!

I just want to make one more point with regard to the right of individuals to post their comments. As tax payers we are ultimately paying for the actions of this person, from their arrest to incarceration and beyond. As harsh as the family may feel some comments are we have a right to feel aggrieved if public money is being wasted because somebody can't control their fists. What people want to hear is some contriteness not 'he's a lovely lad really'.

When he comes out in a few months he could have the chance of proving to everyone that yes he did wrong, but now he will turn his life around and become a better person for the benifit of us all.
Its not impossible, you just need the willpower to turn your life around. Many do, the ones who do are better for it, the ones who dont then there life cycle is going to be Prison, and more hurt for a lot of people, thats family, friends, and victims.

Name one thing on earth lower than a tough guy
Who talks with his fists instead of using his head
Who beats the **** out of anything it can't understand
Behind the muscle mask is a scared little boy

Why do you want people to be so afraid of you?
Why are you so scared of anything that's different?
No one's ever there when you need friends
You wonder why:
It's 'cause you take yourself so seriously
But being such a clown
Gives the rest of us the right to laugh
At your Macho Insecurity
'Cause you can't stand yourself
