A man who was jailed for a brutal north-east murder went on to carry out attacks on staff at HMP Grampian which left them permanently disfigured.
Dean Leech was sentenced to 16 years and 9 months imprisonment in April this year for killing Gary Clampett along with John Henderson, 47, Gary Martin, 37, Thomas Martin, 45, Dean Leech, 25 and James Connor, 53.
Joseph Martin, 40, was found guilty of the lesser charge of culpable homicide.
During a trial at the High Court in Glasgow it emerged they had gone to Clampett’s home armed with armed knives, a machete, sword, a chain, a hammer, bats, golf clubs and poles.
Their victim bled to death at the scene on Fernie Place in Fraserburgh on June 18, 2016.
The group were sentenced to a combined total of almost 100 years for the merciless act.
And Leech appeared in Aberdeen Sheriff Court yesterday to be sentenced for his attacks on prison staff.
The court heard he was being disruptive on August 8 this year and placed in a holding cell.
When Jordan Hodge entered to tell him he was going to a solitary cell he began to struggle and punched his head.
Other officers were sent to the cell and were able to restrain him.
The following day police attended to speak to him about the incident and he became disruptive again while going through a metal detector.
During a struggle he bit Paul Smith on the bicep before being restrained.
Fiscal depute Katy Begg confirmed the two men had been left with disfigurements as a result.
Defence agent Sam Milligan said Leech had struggled to deal with the “enormity” of his lengthy sentence.
He asked for any sentence imposed to run from yesterday rather then the end of the 16 years and nine months and said it could take a further three years for his Leech to be released on patrol.
Sheriff Jack Brown agreed to do this and jailed him for 36 months.
