7-Eleven axe attacker Evie Amati has jail term increased by five years

 

Evie Amati, who attacked two strangers with an axe in a Sydney convenience store in 2017, has her jail term increased by five years after the Crown appealed the leniency of her original sentence.

Amati’s lawyer had asked the court to reject the appeal by citing the progress she has made in custody and the antagonism she has suffered from female inmates due to her gender status.

But Acting Justice Carolyn Simpson said “a manifestly inadequate aggregate sentence was imposed for three very serious crimes”.
