A young football player who slapped a teenager's face in the face and left him a metal plate in his head has avoided jail.
Rhyce Butcher Corney was 18 when he attacked Andrew McNab during a school-leaving celebration on November 20, 2018 in Dunsborough, Western Australia, after a dispute broke out between his friends and another group.
He claimed that he was startled by Mr. McNab, who at the time was also 18, who suddenly appeared next to him, causing him to swing.
McNab says he still can't feel his face a year after the attack, where he was left with damaged teeth, a broken cheekbone, and an eye socket that had surgery.
He said it was & # 39; sickening & # 39; was that his attacker could walk freely from the court.

Butcher Corney pleaded guilty of causing serious physical injury and was sentenced to 15 months in prison on Tuesday, suspended for 20 months with strict conditions at the West Australian District Court.
The court heard that butcher Corney had been deposed on bail earlier this year when the police saw him throw a bottle in the direction of his girlfriend after an argument.
It led him to spend 78 days in prison until the charges were lowered and he was fined $ 500.
Outside the court, Mr. McNab said he was disappointed with the sentence and had not yet received an apology.
& # 39; I would like to see him go to jail. I'm stuck with metal in my face, & he said.
# I mean, I still can't feel my face and it is now a year ago. It's unbelievable. I am really very disappointed.
& # 39; It was just incredible. I'm sick of the outcome today … I could have died … Terrible. & # 39;

Lawyer Linda Black said earlier that her client, who played football for the foals of the Swan Districts, pleaded guilty and since the incident “to hell and back & # 39; Has been.
Mrs. Black said that butcher Corney was terrified in prison.
& # 39; He looked like he was about to faint, & # 39; she said.
& # 39; Mr. Butcher Corney has had a wake-up call of his life. & # 39;
Judge Stephen Lemonis said that Mr. McNab had suffered trauma and still had numbness in his face.
Judge Lemonis accepted that butcher Corney genuinely repented and had taken measures for rehabilitation.
But general deterrence was also an important factor, he added.
& # 39; You came very close today to go back to jail, & # 39; Judge Lemonis said.
The judge warned butcher Corney that if he violated his conditional conditional sentence, the & # 39; almost inevitable & # 39; would be that he would return to prison.
