Justice Elizabeth Hollingworth has sentenced Jason Rohan Colton to 11 years’ imprisonment, with a non-parole period of 8 years, for the manslaughter of Ramis Jonuzi on 25 October 2017.

“Although the offending was not premeditated, and did not involve any weapon, it is nevertheless a very serious example of manslaughter. It was a prolonged attack, lasting at least 10 minutes. It was a cowardly, vicious and unprovoked attack, in which three men punched, kicked, head-locked, choked, elbowed, restrained and dragged a defenceless, unarmed man who kept trying to get away,” Justice Hollingworth said.
