A 17-stone bouncer who threw a nightclub-goer headfirst onto the pavement outside a club has been warned he is facing a two year jail term.

Nottingham Crown Court was told how George Fessey (25), of Oak Tree Close, Coton-in-the-elms, picked up the reveller ‘like a lifeless doll’ after the assault on December 29 last year in Mansfield.

His victim, 19 year-old Rory Davis, now needs a titanium plate fitting to his depressed skull, suffers from slurred speech and is on medication for epilepsy.

The jury found Fessey not guilty on December 11 of causing grievous bodily harm with intent.

But he had already pleaded guilty to simple grievous bodily harm.

Judge Andrew Hamilton decided to bail Fessey until January for sentencing and agreed with the prosecuting counsel that the offence was towards the top of its category.
