The Court of Cassation upheld a juvenile court ruling imprisoning a minor for one year in a juvenile detention center after being convicted of assaulting a man with a bottle in Ma’an.

The juvenile court found the minor guilty of hitting a man’s head with a bottle after a heated argument on March 1, 2020, and sentenced him to three years in prison.

However, the court decided to reduce the sentence to one year because “the victim dropped the charges against the accused,” and the court stated that the juvenile confessed to the assault, “which also contributed to the reduction of the sentence.”

Court papers said that on the day of the incident, the defendant was in a café and an argument with the victim ensued, and the minor grabbed a bottle and hit the victim on the head, causing a deep wound to his head. The victim was taken to a nearby hospital, where the treating doctors were able to sew up the wound.

The Court of Cassation ruled that the juvenile court had followed the correct procedures and that the accused deserved the sentence issued against him, and said that “the accused voluntarily admitted the assault and the punishment he received was appropriate.”
